The Doctor is In

Howard Dean that is!

Dean spoke on behalf of Connecticut Democrats today at Coach’s Sports Bar & Grill on Allyn St. in Hartford. The crowd was large and lively for the DNC Chairman.

I’d rather just show you the video, than attempt to describe the scene. Below is a video of highlights from Dean’s speech, clocking in at under five minutes. I will post the unabridged video in the extended text of this entry as an update.

These are the candidates present today, and I will have full speeches from Ned Lamont, Chris Murphy and John DeStefano online a little later:

Update: Howard Dean’s unabridged speech is available in the extended text.

Amazon Honor SystemAlso, if you really appreciate the time it took me to get the videos (attending the event, showing up an hour early, etc) and posting them online before the 6pm news, please consider purchasing something on my Amazon WishList or making a contribution to my Amazon Tip-Jar. The items on the wishlist are books and CDs that I plan to buy anyway. I don’t need any video equipment or supplies at this time, because thanks to other grateful readers (and viewers) I’m well stocked with tapes. Contributions to the Tip-Jar are also welcome, encouraged, and appreciated. The total collected is since August, not since this morning, so as you can see I’m not getting rich off this. Thanks for supporting people-powered media!

    I was right there with you man! Dean gave a great speech and I’m sure his presence will help all of Row B. Too bad I left early, I’ll watch this video though.

    Howard is simply the best. Thanks for the video. Watching it made me feel much better after the depressing (and probably misleading) Quinnipiac poll. Ned can win and I think he will.

    This was a fine speech from Dr. Dean. What democrats need to do is regain the pre-primary Ned Lamont fervor, disparage the grossly inaccurate Quinnipiac poll, and constantly hammer the fact that Lieberman is being supported by Karl Rove! (See: 10/21 Hartford Courant article.)

    Why doesn’t Bill Clinton come to CT again and this time and put his arm around Lamont?
