    last night at Dartmouth.  And it's absolutely clear that he made a mistake in speaking to this group.  He acknowledged that he had spoken to them, but said he didn't know at the time they were Holocaust deniers, and that once he learned it he refused a subsequent invitation, telling them that he was doing so because of their beliefs about the Holocaust and characterizing said beliefs as "crazy."  I'm inclined to believe that he just didn't know - obviously though that means there was an error of judgment in speaking to a group without looking into who they were.  

    Speaking for myself, I think he brings something to the race, and that the comparison to McCain is particularly enlightening.  I also think it's interesting to have a window into the full spectrum of campaigns happening.  As I've made clear at several points, however, I disagree with his central policy proposal.
