BOSTON - Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean, responding to criticism from the vice president, said he doesn't "care if Dick Cheney likes
my mother or not."
The vice president said in a recent interview that Dean was not the type of person to lead a political party and mentioned the chairman's mother.
"I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best
I can tell," Cheney said in an interview on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes."
Dean was elected governor of Vermont five times between 1992 and 2000. He ran for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination but closed down his
campaign after stumbling in the early primaries.
Dean has recently described the GOP as "pretty much a white, Christian party" and said many Republicans have "never made an honest living."
Republican leaders have called on him to apologize, and even some Democrats have distanced themselves from his remarks.
Dean, in Boston on Monday for a fundraiser, told fellow Democrats that the party can win in traditionally Republican states.
after name calling, could there be fist fights and slapping.
in anicase it be interesting to see wat happens, maybe it be like in Taiwan where angry
politicians be throwing stuff and spitting and grabbing each other.
