I think Nader will do better when Dean tries to move to the middle after the primaries.

You're underestimating Bush's unpopularity in some quarters; the kind of people who would usually vote for a Green Party candidate (we're talking ultra-liberals, environmentalists, etc) absolutely despise him, and would vote for whoever they think is most likely to defeat Bush. I doubt they'll really care where the Dem. candidate stands, even assuming Dean suddenly moves to the middle. They just want Bush out of the White House.

I don't think the anti-Bush vote will win Dean the election, but I do believe it will nullify the threat posed by Nader.

I ASSUME why everyone is assuming dean is the nominee is b/c he is ahead.

Next, Braun, Sharpton ( maybe SC) and Kucinich ( maybe OH) are non factors.

Lieberman is too conservative for the Dem nom.

Kerry is TOAST!!! after NH and running a miserable campaign.

Edwards is the "who is that guy?" candidate yet.

Clark has no domestic policy, flipped ont eh war which p*ssed off the liberal base and is running barely ahea dof where he was before he declared in NH.

Gep--only one who i see as having a shot for nom is non exist in NH and SC, must win IA and prove himself.  Poll out today said Dean lead 26-22.  And sucha  career politician.

If Dean tries to move to the middle he would be seen as to conservative for them.

I disagree. The Left-Wing movement wants the USA to withdraw from Iraq, and none of the mainstream Dems support that. That rift is going to prevent to many Far-Left votes from going to the Dems.

Dean isn't the f**king nominee yet. Until he is, stop saying it. If Dean is DEFEATED, I will come back and LAUGH at each person, who said, "Who will win, Dean or Bush, Dean Dean Dean, Deany Deany Dean Dean.

lol. Yeah, I like Gephardt better as well.  Not to imply that I HATE Dean. But still, I don't go around saying, "Who do you think will win, Bush or Gephardt?". Because I know Gephardt is not yet the nominee, and I would never be so cock sure to say he will be.

Like some members on this forum are so sure Dean will be nominated. Or, that Bush WILL win.

Mostly because of Bandit's comment that the Democrats have a shot at Indiana.

And John, of course.

Bush: 53%
Dean: 48%

53 + 48 = ...

Although actually possible, if it's 52.5% to 47.5%...

I love hte comments about the Republicans doing so well in the state elections.  Now the DFL controls the state house and senate by near 2 to 1 majorities, we have 5 DFLers in our delegation and the DFL senate candidate won in the biggest senate landslide since WWII.

Minnesota tried the Republicans, and now the state is going down the poop chute... expect the DFL to do well in 2008 as well.
