Presents a brief rating of the campaign efforts of United States Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean. OK, we all agree that Howard Dean is not nearly as liberal as George McGovern. But why does he keep giving the impression that he is? Moreover, Dean has done a nice job of attacking the Bushies for implying their critics are unpatriotic. There's something to the Nixon-Bush analogy. But Dean manages to make the case with rhetorical flourishes that have the whiff of a genuine New New Lefty.
