I read Shawn Macomber’s piece on the Web sites that serve constituencies of supporters of the Dean campaign with interest. He writes, “one wonders how they will take re-entry into civil society if their hero crashes and burns.”
Obviously, he has not done his research because we have a mission statement, a vision statement and a statement of purpose that clearly explains that our goal is to promote and achieve positive change in healthcare:
This encompasses all areas of human existence that impact health and well-being. Specific goals within this larger mission include access to healthcare for all residents of the United States, equitable distribution of healthcare resources, a healthcare system that both reflects and respects the diversity of American society, and an emphasis in healthcare policy and planning on health promotion, disease prevention, adequate housing, and healthy lifestyles.
I suggest that we are not a “bizarre website” as described in the article, nor do we see a halo around Dr. Dean’s head. As nurses, we’ve worked with too many doctors to think that M.D. stands for Major Deity.
We are a diverse group of nurses who work hard, pay taxes and have seen the inequities in the current healthcare system. Since Howard Dean has made healthcare work in Vermont, we know he understands the issues as someone not in the trenches of healthcare simply cannot, and we support his candidacy.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
