Moo-On Hopes for First Win--Against a Democrat
I love it
!A merger followed, and by 2004, MoveOn's political involvement included traditional get-out-the-vote operations. Its embrace of Howard Dean's anti-war candidacy helped fuel his brief rise in the presidential race, and it worked closely with John Kerry in the fall campaign.
But in the end, reviews were mixed.

Republicans scoured the Web site for ammunition, and found plenty. A video posted online by one member suggested a similarity between Nazi war crimes and Bush administration policy.
