Howard Dean’s humanity

· 2004 Election

When I read in the Times that Dean’s teenage son said to him (I can just imagine thte exact tone of voice) “I can’t believe you ran for president!” and Dean said that it made him laugh, I liked all the more, all over again.
Last night the local DFA organizers in Berkeley and Oakland met with our Kerry and Kucinich counterparts and found kindred spirits with a wide range of overlapping goals. They still need to learn that we continue to cohere against all odds, have plans that go beyond November. We will help them. They are welcome to join us. This is coalition politics now. Human politics. Humble politics. The politics of listening.
