I’ve been telling people I see Dean is a Bartlet, and Aaron goes into detail. Yeah, like he said.
I’ve been waiting for the Dean moment to match the Bartlet “I screwed you on milk” one, but I haven’t found it yet (Aaron likes Dean’s straight talk about the draft). I’m also scared because I think it would mean incredible things about the improvement of our democracy if Dean were to win, but you can see from The West Wing how the Bartlet people went into the White House all idealistic and stuck up and how it completely backfired on them. You have to hope the Dean people are a little more gracious, a little more strategic, and a lot more political. At this point, they seem to be doing a good job.
