Howard Dean

Most major media outlets seem to think that next Saturday, Howard Dean will be elected as Democratic National chair.

This makes me think, "what if?".

What if Dean had run against Bush? Would he have won? Would it have been an even closer election?

Dean did show a few things during the run up to the caucuses and primaries:
  • An ability to gnerate personal enthusiasm
  • An ability to make effective use of the internet
  • An ability to "click with" young voters

Hindsight may be 20/20.............but I think Bush would have had a tougher go of it if Dean had been the Democratic Party's nominee.
