Howard Dean - Part I

I was once a fan of former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. I was in attendence when he gave his first significant policy speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. well before the first primary and before he came to national attention. He seemed quite sharp. But, somewhere along the way, and long before "The Scream", he lost me. He's really just yet another refried Liberal and really isn't interested in radically reinventing America in a way that is true to both traditional Liberal values and inclusive of 80% of American voters. I don't want to throw away the social safety net, but the current safety net is in dire need of repair. Like a lot of "old" liberals he strangely doesn't get the whole "values" thing. It's also a real shame that Liberals don't have a decent approach to international affairs, especially when conservatives are such a mockery of international relations.
