Dean folds. I thought these guys were better than this. I am not encouraged by the notion that this isn't "a real issue." People vote for all kinds of reasons. I don't expect to speak for anyone else, but it's very hard for me to muster any enthusiasm for a party that endorses broad societal bullying. More than that it's very hard for me to endorse a party that will say to the American people, "Don't think too much." 


The past year has really exposed Howard Dean.
