‘If we had strong leadership in the Democratic Party, they would be calling those other candidates and saying, `Hey look, somebody’s going to have to win here,’ ‘ Dr. Dean, the former governor of Vermont, told reporters trailing him as he campaigned through central Iowa. Referring to one of Mr. McAuliffe’s predecessors, he added, ‘If Ron Brown were the chairman, this wouldn’t be happening.'”
To get the fll context of this statement, one needs to recall that Ron Brown was about to turn evdience on his former boss, Bubba Clinton. We know what happened to him. My gues is this is a rather clear threat to someone Dean considers is not a ‘team player’.
