Dean, Dean, Dean!

I don't begrudge the governor the popularity of his campaign. I'll support him without question if he gets the nomination. But I resent the mischaracterizations of his platform. Specifically, as was done on Larry King last night, that his platform is the only one to address healthcare for seniors. If a show host is going to speak as an authority, he should take the time to actually research the subject.

It is .:Dennis Kucinich:. who first addressed universal healthcare, that includes seniors. His stance was so popular, it caused the rest of the candidates to embrace the concept in some form. That's the mark of a true leader, not a follower of consensus, but a molder of consensus —so says MLK, so say I.
