Guilty Until Proven Innocent?

Some of the posts on polipundit have been a too extreme for me to recommend, but this one is spot on. The notable part is two quotes by Howard Dean:
I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence.
I’ve resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found…I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials.
I must admit I was initially curious as to whether Dean's energy could be used to raise funds for Democratic candidates. It is seeming more and more like this was a silly thing to be curious about.
