A New York Post story says Howard Dean and Republicans share a common goal: "To see Dean become the Democratic 2004 presidential nominee.


Because, the piece claims, polls show that Dean is the weakest candidate among the general populace.

"If you're a Democrat, Dean might be the ideal nominee. If the liberals are right, Dean's the next president - if not, he'll lose in a McGovern debacle and Democrats will stop thinking like Barbra Streisand," the Post states.

The article seems to conveniently ignore, however, that Dean is on a record-setting pace for campaign contributions, at an average of $77, according to his web site, DeanforAmerica.com. That may not sound like a lot, but when it comes from average voters as opposed to multinational corporations and millionaires, it means something different.
