Wisconsin or bust

Howard Dean has drawn his line in the sand and it is in Wisconsin. The Deanizens have responded like gangbusters, already donating $425,000 this morning towards a $700,000-by-Sunday goal. This is the highest rate of fundraising the campaign has ever seen.

Some have apparently been complaining about abandoning the Super Tuesday strategy. As Aziz points out over at the Dean Nation blog, this has always been part of the Roy Neel strategy. In order for Dean to have any chance he has to make the big states of Super Tuesday competitive, but that won't happen without at least one significant win in his column before then. Clark and Edwards have the same strategy and drew their lines, respectively, in Oklahoma and South Carolina and won to compete another day.

Now we will see if this will work for Dean.
