I really like Howard Dean. Anyone thinks he might run? I find he is very honest and credible!

Keeping fingers crossed that he will run and Biden too!

1. Always did like the good doctor!

My heart STILL belongs to Hollerin' Howard! He's always made sense. I wanted him to win in 2004. When Kerry folded and didn't contest the election and bush/cheney stole another one, I went outside to my car and took the Kerry/Edwards bumper sticker out of the inside back window, and put my Dean for America sticker (which I'd kept) back in. And as I did so, I found myself thinking "I was right the FIRST time."

Man, I still remember that day. That was a VERY gloomy day. Even with the sun shining.

2. Thanks for your response! I could never understand how Dems get castrated by the

media when they are such got candidates.

I really liked Dean. Then came the two americas guy and I really thought he would make a change. then he became embroiled in something we never saw that coming. That year, lots of Democracts with value were running! And you all got President Obama. He has been trying but little did he know that the conservatives hated him!

In the end, President Obama still won!

Happy July 4 to all of you!

5. I loved Dean but The Powers That Be deemed he must be stopped

He was a moderate but a populist, and it's so much easier for the corporate elite and the crazy billionaires if Americans don't ever believe in their own power as citizens again. There would be no stopping them, if they did.
And the media did it intentionally by manipulating the "Dean Scream" and running nonstop monologue portraying the totally sane pragmatist Howard Dean as a frothing at the mouth liberal.

The Republicans are the pressure cooker for the masses, the Corporate Democrats are the relief valve -- useful at relieving the pressure inside, but part of the same instrument. Sometimes we still get some really great presidents (Obama and Clinton) on a whole range of issues with this system, but I don't think they are allowed to waiver off the farm on the basic design.

4. I feel very confident saying he won't be running.

 

Back in 2004, when he did run, he said more than once he was running not because he expected to win, but because he wanted to change the dialogue. And he succeeded. He got the 50 state strategy, which was then abandoned by the party, and perhaps will be revived with Bernie.

Please do not waste any time on the Might Have Beens, but support those you care about this time around.

Same with Biden. He won't be running. It's long past his time.

6. The Beltway PTB don't want him because he's not a corporate suckup.
