Howard Dean: Democrats to portray McCain as another Bush, a conservative, an immigration hardliner

Gov. Dr. Howard Dean M.D. has declared John McCain the GOP nominee and is already outlining his battle plan :
How we'll beat John McCainObviously, the bit about immigration is at least extremely disingenuous. Howie knows that McCain worked with Teddy Kennedy before and would do so again and is only issuing the tough talk now in order to fool people. On the other hand, someone else might have written that instead of Howie, and they might be thinking that McCain would respond that he, just like the Democrats, supports "immigration reform" and that would thus hurt him with his likely voters.
...After championing campaign finance reform and ethics legislation to score political points, he now has a staggering amount of lobbyists involved in every aspect of his campaign. In fact, two of the top three sources for John McCain's campaign cash are D.C. lobbying firms, and he looked the other way as Jack Abramoff bought and paid for the Republican Party and the Culture of Corruption.
On immigration reform, he's run as far to the right as he can, aligning himself with the most extreme elements of the Republican Party.
