What a total waste of newsprint this story is. Your whole point is that because Howard Dean comes from a more privileged background he shouldn't get paid as much--or at all--as Ken Mehlman who comes from a more modest background? Or, even more insultingly, that Mehlman somehow works harder for his money than Dean? Or are you simply peeved that the DNC wouldn't give out Dean's before-tax salary?

How nice of you to extol Mehlman's yeoman work for the party. Too bad you couldn't give Dean equal space for all the work he has done and the accomplishments he's achieved in less than one year on the job for his party.

What you fail to understand is that you receive a salary based not on your background or the jobs you used to have but on what you bring to the table. By any standard, Dean is far more underpaid than Mehlman for what he does.
