Dean: Dems Need A Nominee By End of June to Win — and Electability Is Key


Says in interview with the Financial Times that he, Pelosi and Reid agree to an end of June deadline for getting all supers to declare their support, says it’ll take at least two months for supporters of the losing candidate to get over their “grieving” and unite.

Also says that the party’s supers have every right to overturn popular vote and pick based on electability if that’s what they want since there’s nothing in the rules that prevents it.

“I think the race is going to come down to the perception in the last six or eight races of who the best opponent for McCain will be. I do not think in the long run it will come down to the popular vote or anything else.”
