65. So - you blame Kerry on the basis that
there was one person who formerly worked for him. That mkes very little sense.

What does make sense was that this was a pro-typical AB(Dean - in this case) primary effort to derail a front runner. It is clear that they did not want Dean. It is also clear that they were a mostly union group with a sleasy ex- Senator involved. Kerry got ONLY one primary union endorsement - the firefighters. They were not involved in this. Were any of Edwards' unions involved? Given the time frame - November/December 2003 - Kerry was not the obvious beneficiary. It may be they didn't even have an intended beneficiary.

Edwards himself benefited by Dean imploding. He would have gotten far less attention if Dean would have won Iowa.
