If Howard Dean’s Chief of Staff Leah Daughtry is diagnosed with cancer and wants to take her own life into her hands and ignore the "eggheads" in the medical establishment, that’s her business. It’s quite another thing to teach people with life threatening medical conditions to scorn them.

The battle for the soul of the Democratic Party continues.
