He's in the Money

Howard Dean is raising a boatload of cash online to end the second quarter. His campaign blog is triumphantly touting the achievement, as it should. The story just led Inside Politics on CNN, and it looks like the media are taking him seriously given the attention he's received in the past week.

The major debate now seems to be whether Dean can make this last or if he's based entirely on anger, as critics charge, and will flame out. I could link to articles on this, though you'll find one anywhere you go these days. I haven't fully made up my mind on him. I thought Dean could be the guy to challenge Bush, but then I saw him on Meet the Press last Sunday and doubted him anew (though the appearance seems to have inexplicably helped his fundraising).
