The downside of youthful supporters, the NYT reports this, from Dennis J. Goldford, chairman of the department of politics and international relations at Drake University :
"You can't run a professional presidential campaign on a kiddie corps," he said. "Lots of folks said they had been approached by Dean people and that they were enthusiastic, but then they would wander off and talk about where they went to college and what their major was. Iowans don't want to be told by kids from out of state how to vote."
