Sports Analogy

Howard Dean is the Dan Jansen of American politics. Remember Dan Jansen, the speed skater? He was supposed to win every race, but he kept falling down. He wouldn't quit, though.

Yeah, except Dan Jansen actually won something at the end. :)

How about another Dan, Dan O'Brien of the Reebok "Dan vs. Dave" ad fiasco?

Dan O'Brien also eventually won the gold (1996) as well as three world championships. He also held the world record for a while.
