socalled convictions are just campaign positions manufactured by their They dont really believe in anything ex cept getting so they really dont care what is They are like trial They are interested only in scoring points and Theres nothing and the truth simply doesnt Whether you agree with him or Howard Dean actually believes in his He is a genuine An genuine man will not suffer fools nor will he stand around like a dummy with a phony smile on his face while he hears himself lied I probably would not agree with Dean on all of his but I certainly trust if he is to do what he honestly believes is in the best interest of the Thats more than I can say for any of the other Its this quality of being real and genuine that 1 think has attracted hundreds of thousands of people to his What
