  •  the reason... (none)
    Look, I know there have been "shenanigans", to put it very kindly, with the elections in 00, 02, 04, 05, etc.  I know it.  You know it.  Quite a few people know it.  But the majority doesn't, and won't accept that such things have occurred.  I give Dean and the Democrats a lot of kudos for realizing this.  Dean, and the Democratic Party, are smart enough to realize that the average American will not believe that election tampering has happened here.  They just won't.  It's "black helicopter and Art Bell" territory, as far as most voters are concerned.

    Dean's not prepared to start a war he can't win.  I think he deserves a lot of credit for that.

      It might have been Conyer's report here

      ...In any event 1/3 of the country is a substantially higher figure than Black Helicopter conspiracy adherents...and this with next to no publicity for the enormous mountain of evidence that electoral fraud occurred and will continue to occur until it is addressed.

      ...so you can be nice and comfortable with the man who is most responsible for electing Democrats nationally to pass on this very crucial issue, but the fact remains, that nobody fixes what is not broken, and his silence lends credence to the opinion that our election system is not broken.

      ...we need every voice on this.  Every single voice....Dr. Dean's included.
