    that Dartmouth students, with the help of the College Dems and Dartmouth Progressives, were without a doubt a factor in taking a red state in the 2000 election and turning it blue for the 2004 election.  

    So don't just write us (I'm a D '08) off just yet people....we are far from a sinkhole of conservative values that some of you have made us out to be.

      We're going to need younger alums (like you will be shortly) to stand up to the really loud movement conservatives that have come out of the place.

      People who think of Dartmouth as some sort of right-wing bastion have a really outdated (as in, at least 20 years out of date) picture in mind.

      •  and even then, it was a (very loud) minority (0+ / 0-)

        The Dartmouth Review stain was real, but they never represented the majority viewpoint on campus.  Their outside financing by Scaife et al., and their tight connection to National Review and the WSJ gave them frequent play in the media, but they were always more influential in places other than Hanover than they were on campus.
