    of Howard Dean in 2016.  Although I was a huge Dean supporter in 2004, I hope he doesn't.  His time on that stage has come and gone, and he did more in the way of real politics, the politics of involving people and providing us meaningful input and self-direction, than any 10 of his peers.  It's a tremendous legacy, one he shouldn't tarnish with an afterthought presidential campaign.

    Clap On, Clap Off, The Clapper!

      Besides which, I have read some disturbing allegations that he has become a mouthpiece for Big Pharma.  I suppose you can't  fault the guy too much for cashing in on his connections, but things like that would suck the oxygen out of any attempt to recreate the heady days of 2003.

      People do not judge ideas on their validity except when harmful results are in their faces [...] We mostly rely on social cues which can easily be spoofed.
