In his write-up this week,The Democrats’ Dean dilemma: Bob Novak writes:

“The Dean dilemma was spelled out to me by a sage Democratic practitioner whose views I have sought since 1968. He has felt for months that the former Vermont governor faces horrendous defeat against President Bush. Last week, this party loyalist said he felt Dean will be nominated unless an act of intervention stops him. He added that he is sure Dean can be stopped but at the cost of unacceptable carnage. Implicitly and reluctantly, therefore, he is swallowing Dean.”

And therefore, he’s also knowingly swallowing defeat supposedly to save the party. One question, guys…. Why?
