Today, there’s two stories suggesting trouble in doggieland:

The Detroit Free Press is the first, this morning:

Democrats Joseph Biden and John Edwards say party chairman Howard Dean's rhetorical attacks on Republicans have gone too far.

Dean "doesn't speak for me with that kind of rhetoric and I don't think he speaks for the majority of Democrats," Biden, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

While discussing working Americans standing in long lines to vote, Dean said Thursday, "Republicans, I guess, can do that because a lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives."

Edwards, a former senator and the Democrats' vice presidential nominee in 2004, said Saturday at a fund-raising dinner in Nashville that Dean "is not the spokesman for the party." Dean is "a voice. I don't agree with it."

The other story comes from RedState, which I’m simply going to ask you to go read.

The more chatter I see from the Democrats the more I am convinced they’re headed for a major split over the future of the party… and the flash point, I think, will be Howard Dean.

At this stage of the game, it’s an open question as to which is more damaging to the Democrats… admitting that Dean as DNC leader is a bust, or admitting that he perfectly represents his party.

And no, I don’t see those two as mutually exclusive.
