Dean's demise: Joe Trippi thinks the open-access internet was the downfall of Howard Dean's campaign.
The transparency of the anti-establishment Dean campaign made it hard to respond to political attacks from his eight other Democratic opponents and media criticism of the candidate's missteps, he said.

"We couldn't figure out how to tell people we had a problem without raising the wrong impression. Part of the problem is that the press are reading our blogs (Internet journals)," he said.
Of course, without the "internet bubble" of Dean's campaign, he'd just be a former New England governor with no chance of becoming president. Which is what he is now, even if he won't admit it.
