65. Yes, I bet it will
In a sense you are making a similar point, and I agree. And I hope Clark's campaign is hard at work planning exactly how they will deal with the reprocussions of that position in the South and other states that the NRA has a lot of support in. That's all I am saying. Every candidate has different natural advantages and disadvantages with different voting groups. If you reread my posts on this thread you will see that I bent over backwards to say that I am not saying Dean can't run an effective campaign, or win. I also said I expect Dean to fight hard, and I think that is what he will need to do, and he is someone who can do just that.

In my opinion, and it is of course just my opinion, Clarks cumulative package gives him more relative strengths in the South than Dean has. But your reply is great, that's what I mean about playing the cards dealt you well. Dean has to be careful not to overplay his favorable NRA rating on the stump in the South less it hurt him in more liberal areas like the cities in Ohio he would need to carry strongly. I for one think Dean is a good campaigner, with a great team behind him. I think he can pull that type stuff off.
