The chorus gets louder
David Neiwert joins the chorus of those saying that Dean was right on substance, wrong on terminology, his opponents were shameless in exploiting it and have hurt Democratic chances in the process.
Paul Krugman weighs in with the pretty much the same assessment.
I hope (and think) that David is wrong that this flap will force Dean to back off completely from his desire to open up a dialog on this issue. Dean's "apology" the other day included promises that he will not back down from talking about this issue despite the fact that it might cause some people some pain. I'm curious to see what he will say about it in the future.
