25. If Dean had wanted it badly enough. . . .
. . . . he would have stayed angry.

I'm sure the dedicated Dean supporters will correct me if I'm wrong, but the way I recall, Dean tried to play down the scream, then kind of apologized for it, and then finally it was discovered that the microphone cut out all the background noise and made the scream sound "worse" than it really was. But by then the damage had been done.

If Dean had had faith in himself and in his supporters, he'd have stood up to the DLC and not backed down. He wimped out -- and that's exactly what too many of the Dems keep doing. I don't think a single one of them isn't guilty of having royally wimped out -- and worse, they invariably wimp out when it does the most damage.
