Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

In case anyone is wondering: no, I haven't written off Dean. I'm not that optimistic. But his job just got much, much harder. His hard-core support thinks he's the messiah. His soft support - what took him from 15% to over 30% in national polls not that long ago - were buying an internet moon-shot. They thought they were on a winner. If he's not going to win, the Democrats need to kill him off as quickly as possible - because he has the resources to keep fighting all the way to the convention and make things really, really unpleasant. So unless he rights himself quickly, he's going to come under a whole lot of pressure. And you know, I don't think Dean does so well under pressure. In the next week, we'll find out if Dean has more to him than great niche marketing and spectacular hype.
