In political news, former presidential candidate Howard Dean delivered a major address Wednesday and called on the Democratic Party not to move farther to the right. He said “We cannot win by being Republican-lite. We’ve tried it, it does not work.” Dean called on Democrats to run campaigns based on true moral values — health care, education and election reform. He said “there’s only one thing Republican power brokers want more than for us to lurch to the left — and that’s for us to lurch to the right. What they fear most is that we may really begin fighting for what we believe — the fiscally responsible, socially progressive values for which Democrats have always stood and fought.” On Saturday, Dean will be one of seven Democrats to make their case to head the Democratic National Committee at a meeting of the Association of State Democratic Chairs.
