A "Feel Good" candidate post! Am I wrong to be undecided?
I really like Dennis, the soul of the Party, consistently anti-Invasion. Howard has made a very strong case for himself, the Doctor is definately in. John Kerry is a solid candidate with a great Liberal voting record, screw his mistaken Iraq vote, screw it, he was lied to. Al is a force to be reckoned with, seriously, he's kicked serious ass in the "debates". We've got a fabulous woman in Carol, ideologically a wonderful candidate. I can see John Edwards becoming a true Populist, he *gets* being "Prole". Gephardt has a super strong history of supporting Labor. Bob can win Florida and has attacked Bush as well as anyone, "Gravitas". Clark? Should he run I certainly appreciated his defence of the Progressive Income Tax.

I'd say no!

I dig/respect the DU'ers that have taken the plung but damn it's good to have so many great possibilities!

1. In answer to your question....No, you are Not wrong to be
undecided. Each of us finds our candidate in our own time.

I'm glad my time was about a half an hour after Al Gore said he was Not going to run..

But, there is a lot of time left to catch the fire and the passion of the one candidate you want to lead our Nation!

2. A lot of us
are undecided. Its hard to choose because they are all great (well, not Lieberman).
I am almost on the Dean bandwagon, but still not totally decided. I really like Edwards and Kerry also. And I am still waiting to see what General Clark will do.
Soon I will decide and will campaign hard for my choice. However, no matter who wins the Democratic Primary, I will vote Democrat in 2004, because to me, the absolute most important issue around is to get rid of Dubya and company. Even if I have to vote for Lieberman.

Ann Richards said on CNN not too long ago, that when Democrats turn out, they win. With so many Republicans becoming disenchanted with Bush (my brother, who voted bush in 2000 has definately decided to vote elsewhere in 2004) and so many independents realizing that a vote for anyone but the Democratic candidate equals a vote for Bush, I truly believe we will win in 2004. IF WE HAVE A REAL ELECTION.

3. You're not alone here... and that's what's so great
Imagine... we have more than a half-dozen really super candidates to choose from... and when Wes Clark jumps in, the contest will be even more interesting.

Pity the poor Republicans who have only dimwhit as their candidate. If the RNC had half a brain, they'd dump him and try to get McCain to run. Come to think of it, that might not be as farfetched as it seems. After all, LBJ refused to run for a second term because of the mess in Vietnam and protests in the US.

4. I am undecided too
but really enjoying this campaign - there really is excitement. The longer there are so many candidates, the more the country is going to be reminded what the Democratic party is all about and Bush will look worse.
Hoping Clark jumps in too.
