Roy Neel has a message up on the Dean blog introducing himself and giving a status report to the campaign’s supporters. It’s worth a read. And I think he strikes the right note — to some extent just by communicating in this fashion.
None of this changes my view that the outlook for the Dean campaign is bleak. (I think the window of opportunity is closing. And if Dean doesn’t even contest the Feb. 3rd contests and doesn’t place well, titanic forces will come into play that will be all but impossible to turn back.) But I admire their pluck. And who knows? Stranger things have happened. In fact, one just did. Two months ago, Kerry’s campaign looked like a sinking ship and today he’s probably on the way to the nomination.
