Subject:A Role for Dean?
Posted by:juliesmagicmoon.
Time:8:48 pm.
I've been having this conversation a lot with people lately, that while I wasn't supporting Dean in the Primary election (not that I was opposed to him, I just warmed up to Kucinich, Sharpton and Edwards more). I think that Dean really energizes people, and I felt horrible for the relentless "process" stories the press seemed to cycle for the last few months, losing perspective and limiting his ability to re-engage on issues. It's a problem with the relationship of media and politics, but I digress.

Speaking as a Green-Democrat, I think Dean would make a wonderful Democratic Party Chairperson, far better than he would make the man who is currently just spinning wheels. Governor Dean would not only help raise money for Democratic candidates (as much as I dislike the necessity of it), but he would introduce a lot of what both he and Ralph Nader have been talking about for the last couple of years, a truly inclusive and participatory democracy. He and Nader have both been talking about proportional representation, which I think is interesting because it's not the standard Democratic Party rap, it invites more opportunities for third parties, especially on local and statew levels where our lives are effected significantly.

Dean would help invigorate interest in state-to-state elections where we truly need to focus on the horrible redistricting many republican held legislatures have made. He would help us regain momentum for Congressional and Senate races so that when and if we actually could retake the White House, we wouldn't have a President who is constantly unfocused by despicable and wasteful efforts like White Water investigations that cost dozens of millions of dollars with no aim other than to distract Clinton from accomplishing goals.

Call me crazy, but I think Dean would serve incredibly well in that role and possibly be more effective than serving as President in this next term. I'm not saying he's going to be a bad one if he runs and becomes elected, but I feel so energized when I think of what he really could do on an ever grander scale with helping reshape, refocus and redefine the Democratic Party, which is in much need of a deep strategic planning effort. Dean is probably the best-qualified person I've seen in a long time (aside from maybe Clinton) to do this. If he spent time helping us really build a stronger, inclusive and energized Party, I think people would be incredibly energized at future prospects of a Dean Presidency.

Think about it Dean needs a project to place all his energy, and the Democratic Party needs true leadership. Regardless of winning the White House or not, I'm not sure that anti-Bush sentiment translates into pro-Democratic Party. I see that Dean could help bring some youth, vitality, optimism and diversity to the Democratic Party.

The prospect of this fills my heart with hope.

What are your thoughts?

Everyone please post something supportive on cityofmilwaukee. Its a community for the city of Milwaukee. I was reading this community and there are alot of Dean supporters. We need to keep them motivated to vote this weekend.

Ask yourself if there is something you can do for the Dean campaign. I live in Montgomery, Alabama and here is not the place Dean can win. Alot of us will vote for him and the Democrats will back him if something changes...but if Kerry comes down to the Deep South, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi...Dean won't have a chance...

Livejournal can be an effective tool, thie Campaign started on the Internet and we have to push where Joe Trippi left off...

Howard Dean's campaign is trying to raise $700,000 by Sunday for advertising in Wisconsin. Dean just announced that if he doesn't win Wisconsin, he's dropping out of the race. So if you're a Dean supporter, and you've got $5 (or $1) to spare, you can donate on their website.

Mood:angry.
It makes me mad how people are jumping back on the war bandwagon, I have talked to people who were against the war, but now are glad that we went into Iraq because we got Saddam. Must I remind them that we got the guy that didn't do anything to America, and we totally forgot about Osama bin Laden, mastermind of the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history. Not to mention that the only reason we attacked Iraq in the first place was 1) name recognition (do you really think the average American could name the leader of North Korea?) and 2) protecting our oil interests. Bush doesn't care about the freedom or Iraqis any more than any other American. If this weren't true, then he would be trying to liberate every other country in this world with evil dictators, and we all know that that won't happen anytime soon. Which brings us back to the aforementioned two reasons we attacked in the first place. My friend Barb said to me, "Well, if Howard Dean was president, Saddam would still be in power." Maybe. Remember that Kerry was attacking Dean for supposedly flip-flopping on the war issue? He said on a talk show last year that he would go into Iraq, WITH A U.N. RESOLUTION, but not as a pre-emptive strike. And if he were still in power, how would that be any different than our policy for the past 30 years? I mean, when we AREN'T giving Saddam weapons and $$ to fight Iran. I told her this and her response was that Iran was worse than Iraq at that point in time. Whether or not that is true, it shouldn't matter because supporting terrorism is SUPPORTING TERRORISM. This isn't an issue of the lesser of two evils. Terrorism is the ultimate evil, and supporting the "less evil" terrorist over the "more evil" terrorist isn't exactly the best policy. We shouldn't be supporting terrorists in the first place. And if Howard Dean were president during 9/11, who is really to say what he would and would not do? We have no idea if that is really the case, because Dean wasn't in charge of the country on 9/11.

Subject:Dean, Gephardt, and Gingrich
Posted by:rpeate.
Time:6:35 am.
Gephardt keeps saying that Dean sided with Newt Gingrich during the budget battles of the 'Nineties. We keep hearing all manner of characterizations from Gephardt. And we keep hearing Dean saying it's unfair to compare any Democrat to Newt Gingrich. What we don't keep hearing, and what I've not yet heard at all, is exactly what Dean said or did in the 'Nineties that has prompted Gephardt's criticism. Is anyone in this community able to provide it for us, and I mean with exact words, in the case of a quotation?

I appreciate the value Gephardt places on the attack. I appreciate the shock value of Newt Gingrich. But what I find frustrating is not having the facts. Of course I don't believe Gephardt; so I want to be able to refute him. Anyone?

Subject:Open Letter to Dean Supporters
Posted by:vegzcity.
Time:4:06 pm.
Hey gang,

I know I haven't been to the Dean MeetUps (don't get off work until past 7pm).

I know many of you don't know me.

I know it's a crazy idea...

However, I know we can make a true positive statement to get the word out on
Dean. By being visable and participating in our community, we'll not only clean
up our beautiful Pacific Beach in San Diego, but we'll show just how Dean motivates us to be better Americans by caring for our city and thus the Nation.

Please get the word out about the Dean Clean Up at Pacific Beach. Bring friends, bring food, bring gloves :)

You can find out more and even send messages out to spread the word a href="http://www.chuckgriffith.com/deancleanup">by clicking here</a> .

I don't want to get discouraged, and those who have signed up have kept me motivated to get this event moving, but I need your help. I've tried posting to sd4Dean.org, and with no avail. I've tried to get HQ to help, but they're so busy in Iowa and NH, they're resources are spread too thin.

IF YOU KNOW PEOPLE IN SAN DIEGO FORWARD THIS POST!

It's up to us...

Thanks,

Chuck
