There are a lot of interesting things going on under the Democratic tent. Estrich is might be taking an indirect shot at Dean here. The article can be read from several different angles. Is this part of the anti-Dean campaign within the Democratic Party? Dick Morris has said some interesting things, twice, on Hannity's radio show about the Clinton's maneuverings behind the scenes that are laying the groundwork for Hillary's run in 2008. Estrich, I believe, is a Clinton backer from way back. With Hillary Clinton's buddy, Harold Ickes leading the cheers at the Hate Bush fundraiser/rally in Hollywood, and now this article things are starting to look suspicious. Nothing happens accidently.
