So it's official... Howard Dean is now the chairman of the DNC. Hell yeah! As he said today:
This was the first race for DNC chairman truly driven by the grassroots of this Party. And so, I want you to know this is not my chairmanship, this is our chairmanship.
I really think that Dean "gets it", and I'm really optimistic that this is going to be a red-letter day for the Democratic party. Now we just need to brace ourselves for the right wing smear campaign that you know is coming. The blog community is rallying to support our new and improved DNC with a unified donation site, so please give what you can.
UPDATE: Paul Krugman chimes in on Dean's chairmanship.
