Howard Dean

Howard Dean seems to be a rather independant Democrat. According to Ted Rall's piece, HOWARD DEAN FOR PRESIDENT, Dr. Dean has some innovative ideas, such as class-, not race-based affirmative action. Furthermore, he is not, unlike most of his party, a gun-grabber; that is, he does not support excising the 2nd Amendment from our Constitution. According to Howard the Hawk, Dr. Dean is also not in favor of emasculating the US military.

I could almost consider voting for Dean, if it were not for the fact that, given his pro-abortion stance (see Howard Dean on Abortion), TO DO SO WOULD BE A MORTAL SIN!

To give him credit, at least he calls it abortion on his website, avoiding diversionary phrases like "a woman's right to choose" or just "choice." (Who's against choice in America?) He also uses the term "partial birth abortion," not giving in to the insane argument that that "procedure" is justifiable because it is not called by that name in the medical establishment. (That would be like saying that because Hitler did not use the term "genocide," what he did was okey-dokey.)

If his stance on abortion were not enough, the good doctor is also in favor of the Right (or Duty) to Die (see Howard Dean Attacks Bush Decision to Save Terri Schiavo's Life (Lieberman Supports terri)[sic].
