Woe to the free market. I believe the Democrat nominee will be either Dean or Gephardt. Dean has called for "re-regulation." Also, we all know of Bush's protectionism and that Gephardt is even more protectionist. Dean is also protectionist, of course. Now Bush is certainly the least bad option of the three and I expect Bush will be re-elected, but this is small consolation when considering that if anyone of these guys is elected he will almost certainly manage to provoke a trade war. The worse tendencies of a President Dean or Gephardt regarding domestic economic policy might be counteracted by a Republican congress, but protectionism has bipartisan appeal. Economic libertarians should vote for Lieberman. (However, I'd argue that foreign policy is more important in this election, ergo Bush.)
