9. You bet!!
Dean was the primary target because he'd done an end run around all the party hacks and built his own organization from the ground up. Unforgiveable! As soon as they had some footage they could take out of context--a pep rally for the faithful which was shown to prove he was a lunatic instead of a mannerly public speaker--they ran with it.

Trust me, they'll do the same to all the favorites listed above. You can like who you want to, but don't think this is going to be something that is only directed at the candidate you don't like. Try to remember who owns the media, and work from there.
