1,000 Posts to Applaud Howard Dean

How is it that our leaders have forgotten and abandoned our communities and repudiated our idealism and our principles?

When confronted with the President's ideologues, too many Americans have stopped participating, stopped voting, stopped believing that they can change America.

And we in politics have not given people a reason to vote or a reason to participate. We have slavishly spewed sound bites, copying each other while saying little. We raise millions of dollars and each year make lofty promises, while every year the struggle of ordinary Americans increases and fewer Americans vote. And our politicians, many of them good people, have been paralyzed by their fear of losing office. This leadership has developed a vocabulary which has become meaningless to the American people....

...Martin Luther King, Jr. said that, "Our lives begin to end on the day we become silent about the things that matter."

The history of our nation is clear: At every turn when there has been an imbalance of power, the truth questioned, or our beliefs and values distorted, the change required to restore our nationhood has always come from the bottom up, from our people.


Please feel free to post your appreciation for the great work Dr. Dean, your Howard stories, your favorite Howard quotes or moments, yourfavorite Howard pictures, and anything else you feel the need to add. As Howard said in his formal announcement, "change comes from the people."

When we did this in 2007 we got to 149 replies with about 25 different posters: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=132x3054937 - We can make this the most discussed and most recommend thread of all DU3! C'mon Dean People, Post Away!

FYI: If you want it to look more like Old DU...

And presto, it looks way more like Old Du but still with all the bells and whistles.

I was leaning towards thumbs down because looking at replies to posts just kind of stream down the page was annoying, but now I'm happy.

Good work Skinner, Elad and EarlG!
