Yeeee Haaaa! Howard Dean supposedly dipping a toe in the pool for a presidential run

Yes. Howard Dean. It’s like Jerry Brown being elected governor of California. It’s one of those things that makes liberals and conservatives alike shake their heads to see if the whole things is real.

Don’t get me wrong. I admire both Dean and Brown as politicians. Both seem a little out there. I imagine people think the same of me. But Dean as a presidential candidate? He is a bit more liberal than I am. With the current political split in the population, I don’t think anyone too far from the center is viable for a real shot at the Oval Office. That means that carpet/tea-bagger from Canada who masquerades as a Hispanic Texas U.S. senator as well as Dr. Dean.

And Hillary? Jeez. I just don’t know. She has paid her dues as a U.S. senator, I’ll give her that. I also would really like to see a woman, a great woman, elected president. I’m not sure she is that person. But provided she runs, she has the front-runner status. If she was the last man standing after the party primary process, then, I don’t know. I might have to hold my nose and vote. I imagine a lot of people on both sides of the political spectrum might do that.
