Howard Dean promises to go easy on John Kerry. These guys are living in the old world. They both want to win the New Hampshire primary, because in the old days, New Hampshire was a ticket to the White House. This is no longer the case. Paul Tsongas beat Bill Clinton there in 1992 and John McCain beat Bush there in 2000. Sure it is important and to win an early primary helps extend your campaign, but why draw blood a year before the big day. The campaign is long enough as it is. If these guys don’t cool it for a while, and pick it up again in late November, we’ll be sick of them before the primaries even begin.
