Is Dean successful because he's so butch? The brilliant Richard Goldstein looks at gender politics in the presidential race, and it boils down to this: being butch appeals to the electorate, and Dean may have the muscle not only to beat Bush but to rescue the Democratic party. A smart, funny piece. (Meanwhile, have you seen the pictures in the print version of this Dean profile? I was surprised to find myself admiring how handsome he was as a young man. And the profile is a great summary of the Dean story so far.)
