A man with great charisma, a great record of achievement in Vermont, and a moderate despite what conservatives would have you believe. Fiscal "conservative" by which is implied he cared about balancing budgets even tho conservatives never do so, and havent done so in thirty six years, endorsed by the NRA seven times. These two things about him completely erase the label "ultraliberal". He was a overall liberal in the fact he was against the Iraq War from the start, doesn't cut taxes for the rich, promoted tolerance by letting geys have civil unions, yet not calling it marraige, protects the environment, and would be an excellent president. Perhaps the second coming of Bill Clinton. The media unfairly labeled him as crazy after a campaign rally in which he actually excited his supporters, an important skill which John Kerry sorely lacked, perhaps costing him the presidency to Bush 43(IQ).
Howard Dean was an excellent politican, as well as a governor. He may have lost the nod this time, but he will be the 44th President of the United States. "Mark my words. You can write it down."
