Is Howard Dean ideal to help Labour with the May elections?

According to The Guardian, Howard Dean has been drafted in to advise the Labour Party on it's campaigns for the forthcoming May elections!Personally I am a bit wary of "Yee hah!" being hired, but given the recent changes in the way US Democrats have changed their campaigning style and targets, it might well be a good choice, and that, coupled with a forthcoming change of leadership may well make May a pleasant spring for Labour!In any case, what do you think?

I think you'll find it was Senator Charles Schumer and Rahm Emmanuel who masterminded the campaign. According to the NY Times, there was quite a bit of friction between them and Dean, as Dean wanted to use resources to build up the Dem state parties in all 50 states rather than concentrate on the mid-terms.

However, Dean does know a thing or too about fund-raising online - it might be something Labour needs to start thinking about, to pay for the next election.
