More Dean News

I agree with Ezra Klein that Dean's having people vote on whether he should opt out of federal matching funds is a master stroke that avoids the criticism for breaking his pledge. The info on this from Dean for America is here for your perusal. Will any of his supporters actually vote for staying within the federal financing system (especially with the message Dean sent them all clearly indicating he wants to bypass the limits)? I'll be curious to see the final numbers after the voting ends at midnight tomorrow.

There's still no SEIU announcement, though there have been rumblings that the union may come out with an endorsement of Dean today. That would be huge. I'll believe it when I see it.

UPDATE: As you probably know by now, reports say Dean is getting SEIU's endorsement but they're not making any formal announcement until next week.
