You know, this over-the-top rhetoric from our side doen't help. While I privately wonder about Dean, it is easier to say he is "tempermentally unsuited" to be president. That allegation is easier to prove and doesn't make us sound like wild-eyed fanatics.

True, but you really do have to wonder about a guy who when recently asked to name his closest living relative or associate in the armed forces, named his brother, who is

a) dead, and
b) was never in the armed forces at any point in his life.

This guy at times does seem to show characteristics of not being "all there".

Agreed. However, it is better to choose less inflammatory rhetoric and let the voters come to their own conclusions.

The Deans and how they handle their religious upbringiing of their children is none of our business. To bring it up in a campaign is not appropriate.

Exactly. There are a hundred and one reasons besides religion that Dean should not be President, and I'm sure Pres. Bush will touch on most of them. Americans don't like to see religious arguments from their leaders, let Dean make the case that GWB is too religious, if he's stupid enough to try that.

I'm reminded of the way that GWB handled the "restoring the dignity" issue of his 2000 campaign. When a debate questioner tried to trap him into lumping Gore in with the Clinton-Lewinsky mess, Bush just answered that he was sure that Gore loved and respected his own family, and let it go at that. It spoke volumes about the man who Gore ran with, twice.

For me, the article at the top of this thread went over the loony line with the part about Bush dying during a marathon! He may as well have posited another killer peanut!

Boundless, I agree. Hitlery's gambit all along has been to insure that the nomination cannot be won on the first ballot. Then the bitch steps in "to save the party from itself!"

Granted the 9 dwarfs are all rectal cavity liberals but it does seem amazing that without even one state straw poll having been taken, Dean is a lock! I suspect we will see some dramatic changes as the primaries unfold, just enough competition to insure that Dean is not nominated on the first ballot.

The Demonrats will smell blood in the water and jump the SS Deano faster than Superman farts! Step in the Cattle Futures Bribe Queen and I am willing to bet she is nominated unanimously on the 2nd ballot. Dean won't even know what him. Pure Clinton all the way!

Well, perhaps not "all along", but certainly since she
declined to declare and enter key early primaries.

By the way, have any of the mainstream political pundits
(any end of spectrum) been gabbing about this convention
gambit? This seems obvious enough that I'm surprised I
haven't heard/read it anywhere.

Then there's the issue of the Las Vegas line on who would
be Hillary's running mate:
- the Hero of the Balkans?
- Carly Fiorina (HP CEO)?
- Al Gore :-)

Now if you don't care what I think, why are you here. My quote of Whoa Bubba was what Laura Bush says to GWB when he is getting carried away. And you sir, are not very polite.

..."I was shocked to watch [Dean] at a rally in San Francisco when he growled out loud that he wasn't going to listen to any preachers," Murray recalled in the e-mail. "Then in New Hampshire during an interview on Christmas Day with the Boston Globe, he stated that he would emphasize his Christianity as soon as he began to campaign in the South. What?"...

Why are you shocked, Mr Murray? You were expecting principle? Liberals will say or do anything to advance themselves. If there was a Baal vote, Dean would be sacrificing babies.

All he needs to do is self destruct at any number of debates against GWB after he gets the nod as the Dem nominee. With that wide media exposure more American's will take notice at his numerous gaffes.
