An honest question: Did Dean really inspire or did George Bush?

In reading the threads, I repeatedly see that Howard Dean has inspired people who have never voted. I take this at face value to be true.

However, if I look at the catalyst for Howard Dean, certainly the policies of George Bush have to come into play. After all, would Dean even have a platform on which to inspire these people were it not for George Bush's pre-emptive war?


The reason I ask this is because certainly if Dean is the inpsiration, then those votes would more LIKELY not be transferrable, but if Bush were the catalyst, then one can see that there is more impetus regardless of whether Dean gets the eventual nod or not.

(BTW, I am getting ready to leave the house...so I will be "posting and running..but will return to this thread later lest anyone dream of accusing me of a hit piece)
