Yes, I’m aware that Dean’s liberal credentials are debatable (as even Business Week has noted). There’s really no need to innundate me with anti-Dean screeds. It should be clear to anyone who takes the time to read the entry below that it does not constitute an endorsement. Nonetheless, there’s clearly something happening here that strikes me as a step in the right direction. I’ve been saying for years that the Democrats need to grow a backbone when it starts to happen, I think it’s something that deserves encouragement.
