A message from Howard Dean

You folks are the best! I hope you will all keep active both in our new enterprise as we develop it, and also in the short term. We can still send delegates to the convention, and we should. If you are in a state with district, and state conventions, please make sure everyone goes, so that we send all the delegates we are entitled to. If you are in a state that has not yet voted, be sure to vote. We'll have a great time at the convention.
Thank you all for how hard you have worked, and how much money you raised. And thanks for getting involved. It feels a hell of a lot better to try and lose than not to try at all. In any case I have to say that I don't really feel like we have lost. We only lose if we quit. There is an enormous amount of power in numbers, and we can still change this country (and that is exactly what we're going to do!).
