ABSTRACT
The author reports from the Burlington, Vermont, campaign headquarters of presidential candidate Howard Dean, in the wake of Dean's loss in the New Hampshire primary. In the last week, the Dean campaign has undergone a radical transformation. First, Dean lost New Hampshire. Immediately afterward, he lost his campaign manager. He was forced to defer paychecks for five days and lay off some of the staffers who organized young voters--once a central mission of the campaign. I spent a couple of days at Dean headquarters to get a feel for how the campaign was dealing with this stunning turn of fortune. Some aides complain privately about the way [Joe] Trippi's removal was handled: Senior staffers didn't have any forewarning and weren't prepared to deal with the barrage of stories about new campaign "CEO" Roy Neel's lobbying career. There is still some bitterness toward Kate O'Connor, the longtime Dean aide whom Trippi partisans blame for his ouster. Other staffers blame the media for Dean's collapse.But, despite the complaints, the mood in Burlington is more nostalgic than bitter.Despite the disastrous night, he says Dean is sticking to the plan. The campaign will start to do better this weekend in Michigan, Washington, and Maine, and then wait for the alleged showdown with Kerry in Wisconsin on February 17. But there are no promises of victory.
