Yesterday’s NY Times had a good profile on Howard Dean and his presidential ambitions.
“The disadvantage is all the other guys in the race on the Democratic side have national fund-raising organizations; I don’t,” Mr. Dean said at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan the other day, between fund-raising meetings and speeches. “The big advantage is I’m a governor. They can say they sponsored a bill, they tried to get something through. I did it.”
He added: “The Democrats can’t win unless we have somebody who’s a) willing to stand up for Democratic Party principles, b) has a track record to show it’s not just talk and c) can directly communicate with the American people about things that are important to them.”
