Clark campaign manager quits
Anyone with a passing knowledge of the troubles between the different Draft Clark movements and Fabiani's track record could see this coming.
Wesley Clark's campaign manager quit Tuesday in a dispute over the direction of the Democratic presidential bid, exposing a rift between the former general's Washington-based advisers and his 3-week-old Arkansas campaign team.As I say, process is important. Clark is a potentially exciting candidate, with the ability to grow our base and neutralize GOP advantages on military and national security issues.
But he aligned himself with the wrong crowd. Period.
As a former member of the draft movement, I have many friends within the movement who were tossed aside by the Fabiani team like rag dolls.
And more importantly, I believe strongly in the concept of netroots participatory democracy. Dean is Exhibit A of how technology can be used to let people take control of the political process. The Draft Movement was Exhibit B.
And it's not just me ranting about it. Not anymore.Posted October 07, 2003 05:19 PM | Comments (238)
