ABSTRACT
Speaking to more than 200 largely undecided voters packed into a technical-college dining room here on Halloween day, Presidential candidate Howard Dean explained his strategy for winning the White House. Fresh from a red-eye flight out of Boise, Idaho, he spent October 31 making his pitch to voters across southern New Hampshire, the state that on January 27 will hold the first delegate-selecting presidential primary of the 2004 campaign. He promises to "dismantle" the bulk of the No Child Left Behind Act, one of U.S. President George W. Bush's most prized domestic-policy accomplishments. While the funding levels for the No Child Left Behind law have become routine target practice for the Democratic presidential candidates — they say that Mr. Bush and other Republicans won't back adequate amounts of money — most of the candidates don't criticize the law itself.
