1. He's coming on just now on the west coast.

On edit: He did great. Well, except for the dancing. Bad camera angle. This segment was heavily edited though, and who knows how much input he had into the final product.

2. It starts at 11:30 EST in my area,
and I'm putting off my workout to watch, lol!!

I swear, I get all nervous when he's going to be on TV, like he's my relative of something. I'm weird!

8. Same here! I don't know what that is,
but every time that guy makes an appearance now, I hope so much that everything goes well and that more people learn about him.

I actually started thinking about THIS WEEK's ratings, numbers, audiences. How many are watching? Who? Where? It's up against Tim Russert. Is that a problem? HUTs, PUTs, everything...!

Really funny!

4. He Seemed Very Warm And Approachable
<>

I'm glad he cleared up that he WAS in fact the only person talking about race to white people. To be fair, I did like when he talked about his background. I respect his privacy and I learned things about him (like the whole Bronx thing) that I hadn't known before.

Is there transcripts of this show?

12. Artical By Deans Collage Room Mate
Seems they roomed togeather at least his freshman year. Remarked that not many people know that Dean spent a lot of time mentoring inner city youth. He also said he was voting for Dean. Also said that Howard was aggressive about doing good things even back then, and much more. I will try to find link, and post it. The author was Mark Pollio and was a quote from Att. Joe Mancini who was Deans room mate. I think it was in the Port St. Luci Tribune. Written on or about August 30th. It gives me a good feeling about our Man Dean.

5. He did well
They editted out his best answer which was on the button. They played that in the intro to it but not in the interview. I didn't like his race answer but the rest of the interview was very good. I really liked his answers in regard to his life. Great job.

6. I just saw it and thought it was wonderful.
A little bit of everything is included, including some footage of Burlington headquarters.

Very well done.

9. He did do great - but he needs to fine tune the message -
The You want to cut Social Security is based on the fact that in 1995 he heard another respond on what was needed for SS - and the fellow indicated that our pay as you go SS funding would need - if funding remained the current wage capped payroll tax - a change in the "normal retirement age" - perhaps to age 70, certainly to 68 from the Reagan set age of 67 (folks have forgotten how Reagan raised the retirement age - and it will be good politics to remind them). Dean sain he agreed. He has since gone to changing the funding method - by removing the wage cap on payroll taxes. The folks in the AARP understand this - I do not see how he is hurt - except in "media versus Gore" way - meaning that the media will try to screw him on this - but they are RW and and would have done so anyway. - But he needs a better response. Honesy does not sell to the whore press.

You want to cut Medicare and agree with Newt Gingrich - comes from his 1995 agreement with the GOP goal in 95 of reducing the growth medicare medical costs from a 10% growth each year to 7% growth (Gingrich claimed a $270 B "savings" would result, There were no details as I recall, so it was motherhood - and indeed as a Clintonian pragmatist, why not be in favor of the obvious?) - But again the snappy one liner would help.

The yes I endorse free trade and Nafta answer needs an explanation that Nafta sucked except that it saved a world wide economic crisis that would have occurred if Mexico was allowed to go under - yet after its success in saving Mexico, NAFTA is now screwing Mexico as our Farm welfare payment to the major Farm corporations (and God bless that a little of the money does get down to family farms - but that is not the reason the GOP passed it) are destroying farming in Mexico. Indeed that is the reason for the Cancun 26 demanding the US/EU/ and Japan end export prices that are little more than real cost less tax subsidy (I believe beef in the EU prices out at "cost less $2 per day per cow before slaugter" - a great way to teach small countries how we believe in the market pricing model).

I think Dean - and all the others - need to fine tune their message, but I also think Dean did great! - a "Clintonian pragmatist"!

:-)

10. Dean comes across as Dean
I really liked his showing today! George wasn't nice at all, and Dean showed he handles himself like a real person, not some cookie cutter politician who can only repeat lines from a script. He's not perfect, and doesn't try to come off as such.

11. "This flag does not belong to Rush Limbaugh or the radical right wing"
I must admit, I get all bleary eyed when Howard starts that stuff.
