Lynn Allen at Evergreen Politics:

…the top down, “you’re either with me or against me” skills of this last era are the wrong ones for what is coming now. Now we need a Party Chairman/Chairwoman who can rally the base for the grassroots and technologically savvy campaign we desperately need to stay blue and extend that blueness into the red and purple areas.

Paul was one of the first Democrats in this state to support Howard Dean, first as President then as DNC Chair. He sees and understands the future but he hasn’t seemed to want to change the way he plays the game. So, even though he’s been a Dean supporter, the state Party has not been in alignment with the changes the national Party is working through.

What I want the next chair to talk about: social software, community, and grassroots.
