Debate tonight

Methinks a good idea for Howard Dean sometime in the near future would be to settle all this jabber about how he hasn't been consistent on his issues. If he has the luxury in New Hampshire and Iowa that everyone says he does, he really ought to take some time to set the record straight. Despite how its played in the press, I don't think anyone who really believes in a Dean candidacy is going to be all that betrayed if it turns out he's not Kucinich. But at the same time, everyone who has been giving him leeway to excite the base and make headlines by any rhetoric necessary are starting to get a bit nervous about pinning down the substance. And besides, it would only gracefully cement his frontrunner status to start talking intelligently and seriously about policy when everyone else is trying to out Bush-hate him.
