48. It's NOT such a bad thing - you should try it!
Dean is such an awesome campaigner and candidate. He doesn't have that slight stink of fear that seems to hang over some candidates and his passion make him the kind of representative for the collective, Democratic good that I've been waiting for for a long time.

Just got done with a book on the history of philosophy, and it turns out that I am a "Utilitarian" in most ways, and Dean appeals to me in that vein. Dean is progressive where he can be, and pragmatic where can't, and he can articulate his views extremely well. He represents people in this country who are usually made slight laughingstocks - people who are not at the top of the socio-economic pile - and he doesn't sound APOLOGETIC about it. He sounds enthused and happy and RIGHT about it. He doesn't apologize for disagreeing with this radical, hopped-up, imperialistic junta which has weaseled its way into our executive branch.

Thank you for your decency and humor as well - I think that together we and other discussion-minded (not argumentative - necessarily) individuals could steer this board away from its most self-destructive tendencies.
