Not So Fast, Dr. Dean

Howard Dean isn’t as progressive as he seems on the surface if you read Alexander Cockburns piece at Working For Change.

“It’s another imperial Crusader, a death-penalty-loving, Bill-of-Rights-trashing, drug-war-advocating corporate serf. Only he’s a Democrat, not a Republican. That changes everything.”

It’s a shame that the Democrats can’t field a real progressive candidate. One who might unite the middle with the left. It doesn’t appear that Howard Dean is that candidate.
