excellent analysis of where we're at and how we got here- even though it was written back in 2004. A bit depressing that we let this happen and still aren't following any of his advice as to how to undo the damage.

Quotes Ted Liked

Howard Dean
“The fatal combination of Republican craveness and Democratic cowardice wasn't having an awful effect solely on the U.S. economy. It was proving deeply scarring to the American psyche.”
