I don't know if Gov. Howard Dean will be in the race long enough for me to vote for him, but for now I have to say he is my favorite for the Democratic Presidential nomination. In this speech at Drake University Dean outlines a position on the Iraq situation that is the best I have seen so far.
I'm still concerned that Dean won't be able to raise enough money to be a viable contender and I will probably end up supporting Sen. John Kerry as the practical alternative. But while we are this far out from the primaries, I can let my idealistic side outweigh my practical side.
