Dissention in the ranks

As you may know, James Carville has absolute disdain for Howard Dean in the strongest sense of the word. Carville’s latest charge against Dean:

Asked whether Mr. Dean should step down, he responded, loudly, in the affirmative. “He should be held accountable,” Mr. Carville said.

In an interview later, he asked, “Do we want to go into ’08 with a C minus general at the D.N.C.?”

And there’s more!

Here’s a bit more of Carville’s views on Howard Dean:

“I would describe his leadership as Rumsfeldian in its competence,” Mr. Carville said during a meeting with reporters, a reference to outgoing Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, who has been reviled by Democrats.

Carville, one of the best known strategists in the party, said the Democratic victory in last week’s election could have been greater if Dean had been willing to spend more money in congressional districts where races were close. In addition to 30-odd House seats the Democrats have picked up so far, he said, the party could have won at least 14 more if Dean put more money into the races in the final days.
