Is Dean Dead?

Dick Morris today says the former Vermont governor has been “consigned to history.” Maybe. But I think a lot of the Dean-is-dead commentary is premature. We need to see how far he falls during the Kerry bounce. It’s quite possible he will stabilize within striking range. As for his Monday night scream that is getting so much negative attention, it strikes me as a disaster, but you never know quite how such incidents are going to reverberate and play ultimately among party loyalists. So, for now, count him wounded but not necessarily out.
