Howard Dean is a Great Guy, But...
This just in from David Brooks in the New York Times:
George Bush makes many liberal Democrats froth at the mouth, but he does not have this effect on most independents. Democrats are behaving suicidally by not embracing what you might, even after yesterday's court decision, call the Schwarzenegger Option: supporting a candidate so ideologically amorphous that he can appeal to these swingers.
Which is why so many Republicans are quietly gleeful over Dean's continued momentum. It is only the dark cloud of Wesley Clark, looming on the horizon, that keeps their happiness from being complete.
I applaud Howard Dean for firing people up; however, we need a candidate who can kick George W. Bush's illegitimate ass. That man is Wesley Clark.
