29. I respectfully submit
to you that Howard Dean is not the first candidate to "reinvent" politics.

Go back to Gary Hart's 1984 campaign where he campaingned on the theme of creating a "New Politics"

Anybody familiar would see in Gary Hart's "New Politics" the genesis of the third way movement.

What distinguishes the Dean movement from the Hart movement in 84 was there was no war and no internet.

Gary Hart campaigned as a non ideological problem solver. Like Dean his foil was the establishment candidates.

By the way I was a huge Hart supporter in 84 and in 88 till he imploded with the Donna Rice scandle.
