Tactics and Substance in the 2004 Elections GoogleNews: Howard Dean

It's looking more likely that Nader will run according to this piece in the Seattle Times. And of course, Democrats everywhere are beginning to whine and squeal. (Unlike the Republicans, who reach out to rightwing wackos and protest voters, the Democrats ignore and belittle leftwing wackos and protest voters. Clever, ain't they?) Anyway, it's good from my perspective because it will give the hapless Democrats a target other than Dean supporters to blame if they lose (self-reflection not being a Democratic party strong point). But, it's bad if it makes it any more difficult to beat Bush. On the other hand, I talked to a Nader voter this weekend (in a blue state) who said that they'll vote for the 'D' no matter what this fall.
