Just in case... thought the nice note from newly re-elected WA Democratic Chair Paul Berendt thought he was actually interested in grassroots input on the DNC Chair election, let this note from Matt Stoller at MyDD put that notion to rest...
....Paul Berendt publically endorsed Howard Dean 2 weeks ago, just before the State Chair election in Washington. Berendt was able to overcome Greg Rodriquez precisely because he backed Dean. I just made a few calls to Washington St., and talked with someone close to Berendt, whom told me that "yes, he's sticking to Dean".
It's still important to let Berendt and the rest of the WA DNC delegation know what you think, just as a matter of principle, but don't get too excited about the idea that he, at least, actually cares what you think, despite what he said.

(In the interest of full disclosure, I suppose I should point out that Matt, like me, supports Simon Rosenberg for DNC Chair, but facts are facts, and the fact is that Paul Berendt doesn't care what you think.)
