2. They made him the "frontrunner"

but also tagged his ides as crazy and far left....

But yeah, the media doesn't want anyone that isn't an insider...

However, at the end of the day it's the public's fault for being a moron and Dean's fault for not being more media savvy (although I enjoy that aspect of his character)

At the end of the day, Americans want safe mediocrity...
