15. I think you nailed it.
Dean's internet organizing and dedication of his campaign workers were second to none. No question people gravitated to him early on when he was making strong statements against Bush. Hell, I contributed money twice on the basis of his comments/press releases commenting against this administration.

But ultimately, there were stronger candidates in the field. As much as I respect Howard Dean and his campaign, I truly think our best candidate was chosen by the people....but I hope we can look forward to Howard's continued involvement with the Party and the election of a Democrat in November.
