Do you think Howard Dean can inspire Kansas Democrats to increase their influence?

Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St. on February 18, 2005

“Well, he has a lot of experience in fund raising and organizing events as well as very strong leadership skills. I think that alone will raise some excitement.”

“I think he can be an inspirational speaker and his voice is well-heard by Democrats. I believe he will be well-received, at least in Lawrence.”

“He can probably inspire them, because he is loud and boisterous, but I don't think the Democrats will increase their influence in Kansas.”

“Yeah, I think so. They would be pretty fired up. Of course, I don't know how long that would last. I thought he was a good motivational speaker the last time I watched him.”
