END OF THE ROAD FOR DEAN?....The Democratic primary campaign has been so weird that I'm loathe to make any predictions at all anymore, even the rather obvious one that Kerry has it wrapped up. But what to make of this?

"If Howard Dean does not win the Wisconsin primary, I will reach out to John Kerry unless he reaches out to me first," said [Dean's campaign] chairman, Steven Grossman, who was chairman of Mr. Kerry's 1996 Senate race. "I will make it clear that I will do anything and everything I can to help him become the next president, and I will do anything and everything I can to build bridges with the Dean organization."

My memory of these things isn't that hot, but has a campaign chairman ever publicly announced that he was about to endorse another candidate without first quitting the campaign? Jumping a sinking ship is one thing, but aren't you supposed to officially resign first?
