A number of people have asked my why I said “not good” about Howard Dean’s union endorsement. It’s because I don’t buy he’s a sure win for Bush. If he sounds nuts now, bear in mind this is primary season. See the man move center as next summer gets closer (though I still think Hillary could get into this thing, but that’s another issue). He ultimately apologized, but he is a pol who looked Sharpton in the eye and disagreed on a race issue and didn’t apologize when he was asked to (even if he later backtracked). He doesn’t care that some would call him an NRA nut because he’s not for banning them all–and water guns with them. That’s dangerous. I worry about a Dean more than a Gerphardt, for sure.
