25. I dig Dean, but I've got a question
And maybe you can help me out since you are more informed and involved than I am.

Dean is a social liberal and fiscal conservative. He has twenty years experience in Vermont politics including holding the office of governer and leuntinent governer. He did a fine job in as governer and as a result they are doing better now there than most of the country. All of this is cool.

Now we come to my question. It's about Dean's opposition to the war. I agree with him and it's one of the main reasons why I like him. But how is this going to play with mainstream America where we had at least 70% approval of the war? How do you think his position on this issue will affect his campaign? Good, bad or will it be a non-issue come '04? We'll probably still have troops in Iraq come election time so it's probably going to come into play in some form.

I'm not saying Dean is unelectable because of this, I'm just wondering how he's going to deal with this issue. You can bet the repukes are going to try to say he's weak on defense because of this. Will that message stick with the mainstream?
