  •  Maybe this is too simple ... (none)
    but when I look at Kerry, I saw an elitist.  And when I look at Dean, he's too emotional.  I rather did like Dennis Kucinich, but he wasn't given a lot of press or high visibility.  He strikes me as somewhere between the two extremes and would appeal to the greatest number of people, especially if he were to get married.  
    •  That's too simple (4.00)
      and you clearly haven't paid enough attention.  Dennis is pure emotion, and he turns a lot of people off with his ideas, rhetoric and mannerisms.  You've got Dean and Kucinich switched (with the exception of the press and visibility).

      •  You forgot... (none)
        ...and has a penchant for engaging in off-putting activities that make him look like a weirdo.

        Exhibit A: Allowing himself to be filmed (during his campaign!) demonstrating a yoga posture on the kitchen floor, in the house of someone sponsoring a campaign house party.

        Also, I'm not at all certain that America is ready for a vegan president.

    •  You and many westerners (none)
      See Kerry, Clinton, etc. as east coast elites and won't vote for them regardless of policy. Would rather vote for fake Texans.
      If we had western candidates and an early primary it might be different.
