47. He was speaking figuratively, of course.
To the people in Iowa, the orange hats made the Dean folks stand out-and the sheer number of them probably gave an invasion-like quality to the canvassing.

Every political campaign looks at what has been tried successfully in the past, as well as what has failed. Dean's campaign was innovative and that was a wonderful thing. His strategy most definitely had it's successes, but some aspects of the campaign backfired.

I'm sure Dean is well aware of this and if he were running again, he wouldn't make the same mistakes again. In fact, I'll bet he'd even agree with Riemer's comment.
