Howard ~

US NEWS & WORLD REPORT - New Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is no Terry McAuliffe. . . Dean is almost a seminarian in his approach to the post. And, oddly, his style seems to fit with the party's bid to build its blue-collar base -- just as McAuliffe's meshed with the DNC's need to raise gobs of money and go high tech. . . McAuliffe would limo around town, dropping in at the Palm to huddle with Washington big shots. The 2004 presidential hopeful, by contrast, takes the bus or subway, buying his own $1.35 ticket. Sometimes he bums rides from staffers or walks the four blocks to the Capitol for meetings. "Please Call Me Howard" never flies first class and always carries his own bags. Other signs of the ex-guv's modest style: He eats at his desk, stays in a cheap D.C. hotel, and likes oxford shirts and penny loafers. Affectionately dubbed a "geek" by pals, he's often glued to his cell phone and loves e-mail.

Throw in....."likes long walks on the beach", and I think Howard's got a great personal ad right there for picking up ladies.
