The Fire This Time

This article explains why populism may be the last resort of desperate Democrats wanting to win the 2004 presidential election against incumbent U.S. President George W. Bush. Democrats, in particular former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, do not raise the issue of economy and jobs against the Republican Party. Dean's popularity rests mostly on his opposition to the war in Iraq. But this issue does not seem compelling for voters to reject the incumbent at the White House.
