While Howard Dean is a Northeastern liberal, he’s no Michael Dukakis.

While Howard Dean is a Northeastern liberal, he’s no Michael Dukakis. So says William Kristol of the Weekly Standard, writing in the Washington Post about Dean’s chances to win in 2004. In 1988, the former Massachusetts governor lost to George H.W. Bush after being branded a dreaded “Massachusetts liberal.” By contrast, the media have labeled Dean a “conservative” or “centrist” on some issues. But the truth about Dean’s embrace of the radical homosexual agenda could put the former Vermont governor on the far, far left side of the political spectrum, even beyond the liberalism of Dukakis.
