Against Democratic doom and gloom
It's also worth noting that for all of the angst around town about Howard Dean's electability, his supposed weakness as a candidate is not reflected in the head-to-head poll numbers when he goes up against Bush. Plus, Dean will have a fundraising edge that, all else being equal, should make him more electable than the alternatives. That's not to say that Dean is the best choice -- just that folks pushing the "Dean can't win" argument will need to provide more evidence if they're going to convince the rest of the Democratic Party.
Amen Matt. I can't help but feel that some Democrats have been as brainwashed as the electorate by the Republican propaganda machine.
