Ooooo a Howard Dean siting. It's the credibility, stupid:

Dean said he thought jobs, health insurance and economic security would be the biggest issues of the presidential election. But now, "the credibility of the president of the United States is the biggest issue of this race," he said.

Dean told a gathering of progressive Democrats that Bush failed to act on warnings from Richard Clarke, then Bush's counterterrorism chief, that al-Qaida posed a threat to the United States, and blamed Bush for the hundreds of U.S. soldiers killed and the thousands wounded in the Iraq war. "That is the legacy of this president who did not tell the truth to the American people".

Democrats need to "focus their message in a laser-like way," he said, to oust the Bush administration. "These are people who belong in Crawford, Texas, and not in the nation's capital," he said.

~sigh~ I kinda miss Howlin' Howard. His little grin, his anger, his sense of humor.....
