  •  His name is Howard Dean (4.00)
    and he's getting help from Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, and a handful of others.

    •  As someone from VA... (none)
      I can say that the last few months have been very tense here. Kaine put a smack-down on Kilgore, and we're all excited. But, to be honest, Howard Dean is not the answer. He solidifies the Repubs like no other figure, and I don't feel Dean represents the party well. Granted he is outspoken and has a position, but his personal position wicks-through to his edicts as our party's mouthpiece. We have the Repubs on the run, let's keep doing what we're doing, and activate/captivate our base.

      Just my 2 cents worth.

      •  This is the same Howard Dean (none)
        that committed $5 million to Kaine's campaign, a large part of the reason he was able to fight fire with fire.

        Howard Dean and his 50 state strategy are the answer. He's activate the base better than any other candidate in the 2004 election. That base stayed active even after Kerry's defeat to seat Dean as DNC chair.
