Last week’s Economist featured a profile of Howard Dean, seemingly the web’s choice for the next Democratic presidential candidate.
Whatever weblogging Americans think of him, I can’t get too excited about a man who in the words of the Economist:
vigorously upheld the right of Vermonters to carry concealed guns. He even defied a national trend by changing his mind in favour of the death penalty. He continues to sell himself as a deficit hawk and balanced budget fiend (the Bush fiscal policy, he says, is modelled on Argentina’s). His health-care plan is much more market-driven than the Clinton administration’s plan, and much cheaper than Dick Gephardt’s ($88 billion compared with $214 billion). His views on the Middle East are pretty close to the Israeli lobby’s. He is against medical marijuana laws and the anti-global-warming Kyoto protocol.

Is this what counts as left wing in America these days? Moreover according to Salon he may not even be electable. Is there anyone I can root for in the Democratic party with a remote chance of winning? Someone serious about universal healthcare who would roll back the Bush tax cuts?movies bros. bangextreme moviesmovie job handmovies masturbation samplemovies rape teen89.com moviesasian free movies sexfree movies cum Mapsize 2g mp3dese nil mp3 adara5 tablets viagraringtone act foolproduction association stocks credit 1958commercial viagra actress inmarine mp3 remote wireless 300wroulette gambling system 99 6 Map
