500 Rally For Dean in Tucson

Five hundred enthusiastic Dean supporters gave Dean a sun-drenched Tucson welcome when he came to accept the endorsement of Tucson Congressman Raul Grijalva. The crowd was a typical mix of Dean supporters. College students and young professionals, men and women of all ages and…I found…even a Republican or two.

Howard took off his tie and gave Bush hell. He outlined his positions on health care, the war in Iraq, and the failure of Bush’s economic plans. In the most courteous possible way he pointed out the, um, errors of fact and broken promises that characterize the President's public utterances.

Afterwards I met my wife and State Senator Gabriel Giffords for lunch at one of Tucson’s favorite bakery-coffee-and-lunch places. I was wearing my big blue Dean sticker and one of the Spanish signs from the rally was on the table. All during lunch people came up to say they were sorry to have missed the rally...Monday and work, y’ know.

One woman said she was a Dean supporter but asked why he didn’t have folks organizing in Tucson. Is there a lesson there someplace? I gave her a card.
