Barak Obama is no Howard Dean!! And many former Dean supporters know it. Howard Dean was truly a man of peace, and stood for true civil rights and many progressive ideals. When Obama does actually talk specifically about policy, he almost sounds like a republican. He wants to withdraw from Iraq, great, but he also wants to increase the size of the American military by 100,000. His aggressive talk regarding Pakistan, Iran and North Korea causes me to have no faith that he won't involve us in another war. Before a gay panel he refused to support gay marriage--marriage is a civil right and gay people are citizens, too. How does he remind anyone of Howard Dean?
