What I Want
This dKos diary reminded of the contrast between Dean and Kerry.
During the 2004 race, Joe Trippi once made the following comparison of the Kerry and Dean campaigns. In the Kerry campaign, it was all about John Kerry, as if to say, "Ain't I neat?" In the Dean campaign, it was all about The People, as if to say, "Ain't you neat?"
It's almost a kind of Zen politicking: what impresses me most is a politician who doesn't try to impress me.
Besides, I don't want to be impressed. I want to be inspired.
