New Zealand News – World – Attempts to smear Howard Dean grow uglier

New Zealand News – World – Attempts to smear Howard Dean grow uglier: “Attempts to smear Howard Dean and thwart what looks increasingly like an unstoppable bid for the Democratic presidential nomination grew uglier yesterday, as an incendiary new television advert highlighted his lack of national security experience and a well-known internet gossip-monger hinted at possible campaign finance irregularities.
The new jabs at the frontrunner were murky in origin and certainly had no effect on the soaring morale of the candidate as he finished up a 48-hour swing through California with Democratic office-holders, show business entertainers and grassroots supporters falling at his feet like giddy teenagers in love.
Rather, the smears represented, on the Democratic side, a last-ditch attempt to break the aura of inevitability surrounding his candidacy and, on the Republican side, the opening salvos of what promises to a be a long and bruising fight for the White House. “
