Well, in the end it will be up to Howard Dean. He has built up a potent internet and county level intra-party organization, nationwide. Much critisized by the Dem crowd that brought us defeat after defeat, Dean threw the Carvel and Schram crowd a good roundhouse up side the head with the election win. Carvel, with his hysterical anger fit while everyone was celebrating, probably ruined his career. As a result of the big win, Dean has become the Christ-figure of the party faithful. The fact that Matt Drudge, Limbaugh and the rest of the bobbleheads tried to paint Dean as an incompetent boob, well, rubbing their face in shit has been the most delicious thing in this fine lunch. I even got a little piece of that action here, when I reminded Jayhawk who his new daddy was. Now Dean could snap his fingers and pick one or the other, and it would translate to massive votes in the primaries, he has become that powerful. Odds are, he'd pick Gore, most of those who derided him were ol Clinton and Kerry hands, the wing most likely to support Hillary. Gore brings the Greens, the Hispanics (he speaks fluent, expert Spanish and has a lot of residual good feelings there from his last run), and he is popular with the unions., but most importantly, the idea that he was robbed of the presidency by a fucking fascist war criminal, well people have a natural desire to make things right, and many voters may feel this is something they could do to assuage their own guilt or send their own message.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
