You know it's funny. All the "experts" keep saying Dean will have trouble with this and trouble with that, and he just keeps proving them wrong. He definately has momentum right now, and pretty much has been the strongest candidate for months. I wonder why people like Sharpton, Moseley Braun, and Kucinich bother to stay in...do they think they will suddenly get massive support?

Also, I found this articles title a bit funny...

Democrat Dean tells Republicans: 'Bring it on'

"If I may quote the president," Dean told reporters with a smirk, "Bring it on." He was paraphrasing Bush's much criticized "bring 'em on" challenge to insurgents in Iraq.
:D

''I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks,'' the former Vermont governor was quoted as saying in Saturday's Des Moines Register.


...seems Howie likes the Stars and Bars quite a bit more than the typical African American.

I think getting the Black vote isn't much of a worry for Dean as they will not be voting for the Dub in significant numbers.

I agree...I would, however, like to see some ads with Bo and Luke Duke and Dean riding in-between them :)

Where's CAD & Rush to comment on this:

"Perhaps most importantly, there was a substantial reduction in federal spending as a share of gross domestic product during the Clinton years. Using the growth of domestic spending as a benchmark, Clinton was the second most conservative president of the post-World War II era, trailing only Ronald Reagan.

To be sure, much of the credit for Clinton's good policy probably belongs to the Republican Congress, but that is not an excuse for bad policy today. And on one positive note, President Bush has "promised" to fight for partial privatization of Social Security. Yet, so far, President Bush has not vetoed a single piece of legislation. Needless to say, this means it will be rather difficult to blame "big-spending" Democrats if the economy continues to sputter."

Crimson, the reason some Dems hate Dean is that there is a power struggle going on in the Dem party. The Clinton people do not want to let go of the power and the $$$.

As for JohnGalt, John, you lack mid-range response. For you it's black or white. Here's the deal, he actually wants to represent the guys with pickup trucks, Confederate flags, and guns (here's the tough part for you) AND bleeding heart liberals like me. What a novel concept! You can take it to your heart as a thought problem. This Confederate flag thing is like when Jimmy C said he had had lust in his heart. It's a very scriptual concept but binary guys had trouble with it.

Funny, I, like many in the South, thought it was stereotypical nonsense and layman for ?I want the hick vote.?

..glad Dick sees things like I do:

''I don't want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks,'' Gephardt said in a statement. ''I will win the Democratic nomination because I will be the candidate for guys with American flags in their pickup trucks.''

Oh, and as usual, Dean re-invented himself and took a 180:

In response to the criticism, Dean released a statement saying: ''I want people with Confederate flags on their trucks to put down those flags and vote Democratic -- because the need for quality health care, jobs and a good education knows no racial boundaries.

I said: "the guys with pickup trucks, Confederate flags, and guns"

You said, "Funny, I, like many in the South, thought it was stereotypical nonsense and layman for ?I want the hick vote.? "

Which one of us characterized them as "hicks?" You lack mid range response. They're either good guys or hicks.

Lieberman admonished Dean to watch his words.

"Governor Dean ought to be more careful about what he says," he said. "It is irresponsible and reckless to loosely talk about one of the most divisive, hurtful symbols in American history."


..guess it's "black and white" to everyone but you, eh?

Sorry, John, but like you, Lieberman is a putz. Is that black and white enough for you.

There was no 180 in his comment. Both said exactly the same thing. It isn't the words that carry ideas, its the intent. Your lack of a mid-range is really more a lack of a more intuitive method of insight called feel. Step down out of your head and smell the roses. Feed the pigeons.

Yea, it is...you, sir, like to go around and insult people, engage and name calling, and bore us with your babble about mirrors. Go away. Is that black and white enough for you, sir?

Hehe, I think your putz is showing. Check the mirror after you pee and good grief, wash your hands.

Who is Cynthia McKinney and why would she support Galt?
Cynthia McKinney is that whack job who wanted an investigation into what Bush knew and when about 9/11.
Kinda fits in with some of the incredibly nuts things that Dean has been babbling about recently.
