The false 'electibility' is really insane, the behavior of most democratic activists is that of day traders'. This will kill democrats in the general election if they make stupid decisions based on hype.
"For Sen. Edwards' supporters to think that somehow he can win the South when the polls show he could not have been re-elected to the Senate in his own state, I think there needs to be a reality check here," said California Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who visited the Granite State to campaign for Dean late last week.
'Slice and dice'?
As for Kerry and his liberal-leaning Senate voting record, Lofgren contended the Republicans "are going to slice and dice him in the general election if he's our nominee. Howard Dean has a more moderate record in the areas that really count." She noted that while she herself has an "F minus" rating from National Rifle Association, Dean received an "A" rating five times in a row. "That is a threshold issue in West Virginia, in western Pennsylvania, in Ohio. You can't take Kerry's record on guns and win those states."
Medical students Albert Hsu and Genia Crumb drove to New Hampshire from New York to canvass voters for Howard Dean.
A Dean rank-and-file activist, New York medical student Albert Hsu, who was canvassing in New Hampshire for Dean this past weekend said, "The Republicans are spreading disinformation by saying, `We want to run against Dean.' No, Dean terrifies them."
And Renee Cote, who is working hard for Dean in both her home state of Maine and in New Hampshire, said "John Kerry's uniform can only protect him so far. Look what happened to (former Georgia Senator) Max Cleland, he is a triple amputee and they ran him out of his seat because he wasn't patriotic enough. Howard Dean has the ability to fight George Bush and go toe-to-toe with him and he will not back down."
