What we should be focused on

The truth is, it won't and that's ok. I don't believe that to be the point or value of Dart anyway. Dart2Js is just a nice bonus.
Point number one: Back-end use and benefits
So Dart is a big win for the back-end, rapid development, and keeping things lean. When you blur the lines between the "back-end" and the "front-end" you need less workers to get things done. Less specialization...Less fragmentation...Less points of failure in your work force. It's good for business.
Point number two: Chrome apps and Chromebook.
Google doesn't actually need all browsers to adopt the Dart VM. Chrome apps are becoming more popular and can launch from your desktop, etc. Oh right, the run on Chromebook too. So Google has more than enough devices capable of using the Dart VM (when they put it into Chrome). Chromebooks really help out here.
So how does Chromebook get a Photoshop? Well sure, we can use Aviary if we're ok with Flash. However, Flash is dying for many reasons and more importantly it isn't the best for working with the file system. There's a lot of security restrictions and it has its own problems that I won't get into. Dart is a far better fit on the Chromebook.
If Dart wasn't, at least in part, created to serve the promotion of Chromebooks and their usage (allowing them to actually do more), then I'd be shocked.
Other signs of value
My experience with it
I recently joined the folks at sonarDesign to work on their platform that enables users to create apps on the web that work across many platforms. Building things once and having them work on mobile and desktop is really important these days.
Be sure to give sonarDesign's platform a look. There's a long road ahead of it and there's some really exciting new features coming down the pipe soon, but for now it's certainly a great tool for your presentations. It's also very foreshadowing of things to come and the power of possibility.
