candidate dean

Howard Dean for the past few days has been sitting in for Stanford professor Lawrence Lessig on his popular blog. Lessig is back now, talking about the experience. If you have time, you might want to go and read through Deans posts. Its neat the way hes taking to the internet and using it as a tool. Heres a clip from one of Deans posts:

No matter what the issues are that we as individuals care most about– whether intellectual property, healthy care, the environment I believe that the only way we are ever going to come to a real solution on any of these issues is if we all stand together against the special interests in Washington. There are now 33 lobbyists for every member of congress. How do we change that? By working together. One of the amazing things about this campaign is how the Internet has allowed people to meet and work together in common cause. Only by taking an active part in our democracy will we be able to restore a government of, by and for the people.

Im still not completely sold on Dean, but I do like what Ive been reading lately. Of particular interest to me these last few days has been the web site Republicans for Dean. The folks posting there have pretty interesting perspectives.

This isnt exactly related, but lately, over the course of the past year or so, Ive been like McCain a lot more too.

OK, now I really do need to get going to the bar.
