14. The problem with that is
OK, Dennis was not going to be verry viable. He took the guy who would get him some delegates and who matched on MORE of the Core issues than anyone else.

What would you have liked him to do? Throw to Dean who is NOT the anti-war candidate he claims and is moderate at best? Throw to Kerry, that's as bad as Edwards on the war, doesn't match up as closely on cardinal issues, Kery didn't want him. Throw to Gep? Gep's worse than Kerry. Throw to Sharpton? Neither would be viable. Edwards has/had been talking up the parts of his beliefs that are closer to Dennis' than anyone else. Clark isn't in the race (though they are probably closest of all).

SO its either be blown out of Iowa completely or throw in with someone (not endorse or support, or let go on in other primaries) who could get him some votes to continue. This way he can take those people to the primaries, wield some influence on the platform and if its close be a dealmaker/concession getter come convention time.

my point in asking though, is both of them are Catholic.
