Howard Dean,

former governor of Vermont, enjoyed frontrunner status in the crowded field of Democratic presidential hopefuls before the first primary. His star dimmed early, however, when he placed third in the Iowa caucuses and second in New Hampshire. He dropped out of the race in February. Throughout the campaign, Dean was an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq and of President Bush. He also revolutionized political campaigning, using the Internet as a fund-raising and organizational tool.
