110. You mean like Ghandi or Jesus or JFK or FDR?
Dean supporters are devoted to Dean because he listened to us and then started speaking for us.

When he stops speaking for us is when we stop following him.

The fact that your candidate doesn't have any strong supporters doesn't make him a better candidate.
