Howard Dean, from the lil ol' state of Vermont holds his line in the sand. All the (leading) democratic candidates tout equal rights for sexual orientation: Howard's state got it done. All the democratic candidates tout affordable healthcare: Howard's state got it done (Dr. Dinosaur, Howard's baby, insures every child in the state is covered by health insurance, and has one of the highest if not THE highest percentage of people insured.) All the democratic candidates are whining about the deficit (boy, is THAT a switch since my days in the 70's): Howard's state is one of eight in the black.
My point is, this is a guy who has gotten it done. In a state that is notorious for not getting anything done (which is a big reason why it's such a lovely, strip-mall-and-billboard free land to live) Howard, with his energy, enthusiasm and take no prisoners style, got things done. As a governor for ten years, he had lots of practice dealing with the politics of legislative bodies. As president, he will get things done.
This guy is amazing. Check him out. And no, I am not a paid campaign employee.
