61. True
I went through the draft and if anyone had disliked himn enough then, one photo of him skiing would have been enouigh to get his assthrown into jail for exagerating his medical condition.

This condition ONLY would have gotten him a deferrment if it was said to be so serious that he could not engage in any rigorous physical behavior, and if he could ski, he would be in good enough shape to be drafted.

The press will leave this alone until later in the campaign, and after going after all of his flip flops, will drop this icing on the cake. But if it is determined that he did exagerate this condition to get out of the draft later, this act would be a felony, and disqualfy him from running, so we will see how they treat it closer to the elections. I am certain Bush already has his hands on the draft and medical records and will eagerly use them, becasue brining up BUsh's own status has hit a dead end, and a Republican congress will not go after him, but be willing to go after Dean.

Any negative stuff about Dean is going to be held off on until it gets closer to the nomination, and then a flood of multiple negative Dean information will appear in the media, meaning Dean will either have to spend most of his time arguing about his past, or trying to run his campaign. He will not be able to deal with dozens of questions about his performance as governor or his flips of opinion as candidate all at once. The other candidates are going to barrage Dean, and Dean simply is not up to that challenge, One on one, maybe a faint chance but 8 on one and a multitude of media questions will bury him.

And one thing Republicans are good at is slinging mud, They keep slinging until a big bit of mud sticks and then they persue it.It is their main campaign strategy.
