5. Here's an easy one for you. He's leading Bush in the polls.
Though, that's likely not a good enough reason for you, I'm sure.

Heck, I'm not even a Kerry supporter.

"There are several Dean supporters here who would love to hear an original, reasoned argument that doesn't repeat the above mantras. Do you have that kind of argument?"

I'm sure there are plenty of Kerry supporters that would like to hear a similar, in-depth analysis of why Dean is a better candidate than Kerry, without all of the standard Dean "mantras" often offered.

Your "mantras", by the way, are rather oversimplified. How many supporters do you know of who are voting for a candidate solely for one reason? Not many, if any. Most people choose their candidates for a multitude of reasons and base their decisions on the overall candidate.
