Howard Dean

Andrew Sullivan, a columnist for Time Magazine, wrote a great column on why Dean is a better Democratic presidential candidate than Kerry, and he makes some excellent points (thanks, kizlj, for pointing this out). He calls John Kerry "Gore redux," which is basically how I feel about him. Too wishy-washy to really change anything, too dull to really be a threat to Bush. If Kerry gets the nomination, which is looking increasingly likely, I feel it'll condemn us to going through the 2000 election a second time.

With that in mind, consider that Dean says he will quit the race if he fails to win Wisconsin, which has its primary on Feb. 17th.

If you consider yourself a Dean supporter, now's the time to put forth that last-ditch effort for his campaign. Visit his site. Join the campaign. Write letters, send in a donation, whatever. He's the best damn chance this country has to shape up, and if we can get him in office, things will get better, and fast.

And if you're not registered to vote, for the love of all that's good, go register and cast your ballot when your primary comes around.

I was going to say that maybe he just believes in getting his message out there, but after reading his comments as reported by the AP yesterday, I think maybe Kucinich is just delusional...

Democrat Dennis Kucinich has only two delegates and low single-digit showings after nine nominating contests, yet he said Wednesday he's staying in the presidential race.

"The race for the nomination will go all the way to the convention," Kucinich said in a statement. "It is at the convention where I will win the nomination, based on the emergence of Iraq as the defining issue."

In the seven states that voted Tuesday, Kucinich finished with no more than 5 percent of the vote and none of the 269 pledged delegates at stake. A candidate needs 2,162 delegates to win the Democratic nomination...
