So we’re on “Orange Alert.” I guess maybe capturing Saddam Hussein really didn’t make he country any safer, at least in the short run.
Of course, a majority of voters already knew that.
But that doesn’t mean they want to be told it by someone running for President. The purpose of a Presidential campaign is to convince the voters to like you, to trust you, and to think you’re on their side. Raining on the national parade, even by telling the truth, doesn’t help with any of that.
A campaign isn’t words; it’s music. And Dean’s comment was badly off key.
