11/09/2003 Archived Entry: "Dean turns down tax-paid, government controlled campaign funding"

GREAT NEWS THAT HOWARD DEAN WON'T TAKE MATCHING CAMPAIGN FUNDS. He joins Bush in that decision and becomes the first Dem ever to refuse that particular tax-tit.

Of course it's a strategic decision, not a principled one. But I did like that the Washington Post said the decision may "doom" the matching-funds law. (The NYTimes more realistically said the law would need an "overhaul" -- which probably means it'll get worse. But let's take our good news where we can.)

Howard Dean looks more interesting all the time. He may just be another Tweedledee or -dum. But at least he's more entertaining than the old familiar Bush-Kerry-Lieberman-Clark gang.
