98. I want you to act intelligently
...especially if you claim to support Gov. Dean.

I didn't mean that I expected you to personally attack other DU members. I do wish you'd reserve your especially nasty barbs for those who push the limits here. Members who post their positions respectfully are fully within their limits (regardless of whether you agree with them or not). This is DU...Democratic Underground...NOT "Dean Underground". We ALL have something valuable to say.
