36. Dean Is A Win/Win For The GOP
Dean is one of the weakest canidates in many respects to put up against Junior...

And even if he wins, Dean is beholden to Big Energy and people like the Koch Brothers because they are the ones who funded him as Governor and who also helped seed Dean's Presidential Campaign.

Those papers that Dean has sealed most likely contain uncomfortable evidence of Dean's involvement in helping Intergy purchase a power plant below the real value.

Even if Dean's papers are never released... Rove and Co. know the whole story about what went on in Vermont regarding Dean & the Energy Industry.

If Dean is nominated and somehow manages to squeak into office... Rove will have him by the shorthairs.

Dean isn't a Liberal anyway and is pretty much right of center... his 11th hour switch on issues gives little confidence that he sincerely believes in Liberal values or causes.
