3. He didn't "self-destruct"; the whole "Dean Scream scandal" was manufactured.
Edited on Mon Sep-12-11 08:12 PM by Tesha
The media, in large part, made him and when it suited
their needs, the media broke him (so that Kerry could
lose the election for us). Notice how Howard's fortunes
changed when he started discussing how irresponsibly
the media has worked in this country.

And yes, we would have been far better-off with Howard
than any of a number of alleged-Democrats who have been
fronting for the party over the last several decades.
