40. The people who continue to state that Dean misrepresented himself
are just buying into the line the media and the Democrats who wanted anyone but him as a nominee were pushing. Dean is a moderate who never claimed to be anything else policy-wise. However, TACTICALLY he was calling for the party to be unafraid to stand up for the traditional populist positions that had been its traditional mainstay.
People bought into the "Dean's so liberal" mantra because he signed a gay unions law and opposed the Iraq War. On many other issues he is very moderate.
I'm sure that this will be ignored, however, because it serves the purpose of some to continue to try to say that he misrepresented himself.
