65. The difference is that Dean "supporters" are actually the Dean
campaign. Dean, Trippi et al. trust us to work hard and to promote Dean in unprescribed ways. The danger of that is (for example) some sleazebag low-level volunteers who pretended to be Dean supporters pulling some pranks in Iowa, but they were dealt with in short order. Dean has always trusted his supporters and respected them. We get e-mail from the campaign, both nationally and locally, on a daily basis.

We are just American people who want our country back. Dean represents us. It's sort of an old, quaint, Constitutional idea...
