Today's LA TImes
has a nice background article
on Dean which highlights his centrist credentials and his accomplishments as governor of VT. It does bring up the "angry Dean" meme, but I think it's handled fairly.
It's part of a series of biographical pieces they're doing on the candidates. yesterday's was Gephardt. Tomorrow is Edwards.
And, it's on the front page of the print edition! (Although it's buried in corner of the on-line edition, under "Gephardt rips Dean's judgement.") Check it out, we won't be seeing much of its like in the coming months.
