What Next For The Neocons? Watch Very Closely!
Watch Very Closely. This is definitely worth a read and careful consideration. The article is full of links delving further. In my personal opinion, Dean supporters should take a long look at Dean's wavering positions.
"Alternatively, or quite possibly simultaneously, there may be a decision by neocon leaders to rally behind a Democratic presidential candidate. Remember Ben Wattenberg endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992. This will happen if and when Bush gets tired of them – and certainly if he shows signs of losing his bid for reelection."

"The neocons’ preferred candidate would be Lieberman, whom they’ve been talking up for years. The fact that Lieberman favors affirmative action and partial birth abortion obviously counts far less than how he stands on Iraq and the Palestinians. But neocons are simultaneously building other bridges to the left. Thus in August and September, Christopher Caldwell in the Weekly Standard had several articles presenting Howard Dean as a spirited, intelligent presidential candidate who could be “Bush’s worst nightmare.” It is hard to read such stuff without perceiving the presence of an extended olive branch.
"If Dean or some other Democratic candidate can be brought around on two critical issues – namely (1) the Middle East and (2) giving neocons prestigious jobs in a Democratic administration – the neocons would likely sign on. This in turn would require them to tilt leftward on domestic issues, something they would do on a moment’s notice." [ read it all ]
