22. More false dilemmas masking real poltical differences
Dean vs. "appeaser" is not the only choice. I reject that and your view of where Dean stands with respect to the left/right split.

If Dean actually defeats everybody but Graham and Lieberman, I'll take a fresh look and decide whether or not to jump on your bandwagon. At the moment, thankfully, my choices are not so limited.

I would never tell you that you can't see my point of view--kind of defeats the purpose of debating, eh?--but I'm begining to think you won't. If you want to refer to an objective measure of the situation, perhaps we can begin by agreeing that today is August 28th, 2003.
