I'm uncertain about the potential for Dean to effectively lead the Democratic National Committee. His positions were too far-left and as an mouthpiece he made much of America cringe. Many Republicans are optimistic that Dean's leadership will lead the Democratic party towards failure. I think it's a sign, similiar to the presidential race, that the Democrats have weak leadership at the top.

New national Democratic Chairman Howard Dean promised Saturday to rebuild the party in the most conservative regions of the country, help develop state and local organizations and let congressional Democrats set the tone on policy.

Dean's statements below are amusing and too transparent for most of America. Does he think his "new language" will hide the positioning of the left and (mis)lead the red states to blue?

The former Vermont governor promised to learn how Democrats can communicate positions more effectively.

Dean says that no one is "pro-abortion," but "we are the party in favor of allowing women to make up their own minds about their health care."

And Democrats are not for "gay marriage," but "we are the party that has always believed in equal rights under the law for all people," he says.
