ABSTRACT
The article rates Howard Dean for political courage. With Dean's lock on the nomination tightening, it's time to take a fresh look at his views--or, rather, to take a look at his fresh views. Unless the new, protectionist Dean thinks "caring" about American steelworkers is worth punishing several of America's other industries with harsh European Union sanctions (and unilaterally infuriating the rest of the world--something I seem to recall him denouncing), he ought to ease off. There was, after all, almost complete consensus among economists that the steel tariffs were a bad idea. Dean's condemnation of the tariff repeal was the second-most shameless Rust Belt pander in recent years. The first, of course, was Bush's imposition of tariffs in the first place.
