More debate

More advice for Dean: Get some statesman-speak. Dean's lack of a larger vision for international policy and the U.S. relationship with the Middle East was notably absent from his responses to Iraq questions, while, at the same time, Kerry and Lieberman both spoke very eloquently here. Dean can't forget that while Bush sold half the war with fear and deceptions, the other half was sold by pretending to be Woodrow Wilson. If Dean can't match that language and vision, and marry it to his critique of the war, he won't get very far with Bush. Americans are actually kind of interested in these questions right now, and good answers buy a lot of the credibility that Dean will sorely need. More on this later.
