Dean on Sunday
At the Center in Ames, Iowa. Saw it on C-SPAN. Fantastic. I'm worried he might be slaughtered by the media (i.e. converted into McGovern), I'm worried the Democratic machine will choose Hillary (i.e. Dean = McCarthy '68), I'm worried he might have some skeleton in the closet which will make me regret my support, I'm worried he speaks too intelligently for the media to catch on, or for his ideas to filter into the national psyche, I'm worried his performance in the debates will be shaky until he gets his footing. I'm worried that I might not have learned anything in the last four years. By the way, it was a Sunday, between Christmas and New Year's, and Dean got 400 people to come out for him in Iowa.
