Vox Populi, Vox Humbug

There's something a little wrong about the way so many Democrats are trying to anoint Howard Dean as their party's new champion. With all the criticism of the bad old days of old men in smoke-filled rooms picking nominees, here we are with the contest virtually over five weeks before the first vote is cast in Iowa. I understand it and the rationale for it, but it does seem to be at odds with a professed love for the voice of the people.

Or am I missing something?
