  •  Dean mentioned... (4.00)
       ...that going negative doesn't work very well in a multi-candidate race -- the voters have more "pleasant" alternatives. That's one of the lessons he learned from Iowa. (That's right, Dean learns lessons from his failures. That puts him ahead of the DLC crowd, right there.)

       In a two-man race, though, going negative works like a charm. And Dean was attacking Bush daily from Day One.

      I seriously doubt Dean would have done worse than Kerry (whom I really do like, BTW; I just think he listened to too much bad advice from the Shrums of the world).
