    DETROIT -- The Democratic Party can no longer sit back and wait until three weeks before an election to ask minorities for their vote, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Friday. "In many ways, the Democratic Party hasn't moved itself out of the '60s and '70s," Dean said in remarks to the DNC's African-American Leadership Summit, which is aimed at mobilizing black voters and encouraging more minority candidates for state offices."If we don't get smart about having folks on the ticket that look like the people whose votes were asking for, in meaningful positions of authority, then we're not...

    Message from Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean: " Al Gore is demonstrating exactly the kind of courage and moral clarity that Democrats will bring when we take back Congress and win elections up and down the ballot this year." In a message posted on the DNC's "Kicking Ass" blog Wednesday, Dean urged his fellow Democrats to keep fighting for action on "global warming." "Facts are facts," Dean said. "Global warming is happening, and it threatens our very existence." Dean said Al Gore - braving "right wing efforts to silence him" - is giving voice to "one of the great...
  • Demos can win religious voters, Dean insists

    EUGENE (AP) — Howard Dean says Democrats must have faith in their ability to attract religious voters. The former presidential candidate, who will speak at this weekend’s Oregon Democratic Convention in Eugene, says his party must do a better job of winning the support of evangelical Christians, who have voted Republican in recent elections. To that end, Dean recently appeared on Pat Robertson’s “700 Club.’’ The appearance wasn’t without its bumps. Dean had to later apologize to gay-rights leaders for incorrectly stating during the program that the party’s platform said “marriage is between a man and a woman.’’
  • Howard Dean: Katrina Will Put GOP Out of Business

    April 21, 1006 — In one of those odd political moments that combine a poignant message with somewhat opportunistic maneuvering, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean took part in a cleanup effort in flood-ravaged New Orleans and used the moment to take a shot at the Republicans. In his first post-Katrina visit to the Crescent City, Dean helped Acorn, a nonprofit community group that works with low-income families, to clean out Vincent Cooper's flood-damaged home on Derbigny Street in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans. "I don't want to be partisan at a time like this, but this is...

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean yesterday called border security his party's top immigration priority for November. "The first thing we want is tough border control," he said. "We have to do a much better job on our borders than George Bush has done. And then we can go to the policy disagreements about how to get it done."

    Remember this? "The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." Those are George Bush's famous 16 words from his 2003 State of the Union address, delivered less than two months before he sent troops into war in Iraq. They were false. Three years later Americans are still demanding answers on the manipulation of intelligence by an administration eager to start a war. Americans have a lot of questions that went unanswered tonight. When George Bush delivered his State of the Union address, he had a big megaphone and the world's attention. He...

    Howard Dean thinks Indiana is ready to be a "blue" state. After all, Hoosiers put a Democrat in the governor's mansion for 16 years, he noted. "This is not a Republican state," Dean emphasized to the crowd. The chairman of the Democratic National Committee visited Northwest Indiana Thursday and spoke to a crowd of Democrats at the Avalon banquet center. A private $500 per ticket reception preceded the general event, in which supporters paid $50 to see the former Vermont governor and 2004 presidential primary candidate. Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker introduced Dean and said since Republican Mitch Daniels...

    THE MINOT DAILY NEWS ^ | December 17, 2005 | Editorial
    Democrats hoping to convince their fellow Americans that they offer a viable alternative to President Bush are being done an enormous disservice by the national chairman of their party. Howard Dean last week shocked many other leaders in his party when, during an interview in Texas, he said, "The idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong." That sent several Democrats in Congress ­ including Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada ­ scrambling to undo the damage. Reid, certainly no friend of Bush, said the war must be won...

    Monday, Dec. 5, 2005 11:43 p.m. EST Michael Reagan: Dean 'Should Be Hung' Michael Reagan, son of the late President Ronald Reagan, is blasting Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean for declaring that the U.S. won't be able to win the war in Iraq, saying Dean ought to be "hung for treason." "Howard Dean should be arrested and hung for treason or put in a hole until the end of the Iraq war!" Reagan told his Radio America audience on Monday. Reagan was reacting to Dean's comments earlier in the day, when the top Democrat said that the "idea that...

    CHRIS MATTHEWS, HARDBALL HOST: Dr. Dean, were you surprised by the nomination of Harriet Miers to be a member of the United States Supreme Court? HOWARD DEAN, CHAIRMAN, DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE: I was surprised. I'm like most every other American, including the ones in Washington. We know almost nothing about her. And we have a lot of questions to be answered before she gets a lifetime appointment. MATTHEWS: Would you have ever thought of her as a possible court nominee? DEAN: No. You know, she's a person who's very much below the radar screen as the president's legal counsel. But...

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is blaming President Bush for the hundreds of deaths that resulted from what he said was the Federal Emergency Management Agency's mishandling of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. "The Bush administration just went back to turning [FEMA] into a dumping ground for people who evidently didn't have anything else to do," Dean told the Fox News Channel's Alan Colmes on Tuesday. "And it's really too bad because now people have paid for that with their lives," he added. When Colmes reminded him that Bush said he accepted personal responsibility for any federal shortcomings in the...

    Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean argued on Friday that Republicans will try to make immigrants the "scapegoats" in the next election. At a rally, Dean garnered the loudest applause when he said Republicans would make immigration a pivotal issue during upcoming elections, as they did gay marriage and affirmative action in previous elections. "Do you know who the scapegoats are going to be? Immigrants," he said. "In Colorado, the chairman of the Republican Party endorsed Tom Tancredo for re-election. That is morally reprehensible. The governor of California, a supposed moderate Republican, invited the Minutemen to visit California. We do not...

    Democrat Party ^ | 8/4/2005 | Mad Dr. Dean
    Dear Chuck, Your mandate to fight everywhere had its first test last night. Marine Major Paul Hackett ran for Congress in a special election in the most Republican district in Ohio. Republicans vowed to "bury" him, pundits wrote him off, and the conventional wisdom asked why Democrats would even bother to put up a fight. But then something happened. With the infrastructure of local organizers we're building in Ohio and every other state, the most Republican district in Ohio became the most competitive district in Ohio -- a district where Bush won in 2004 by a margin of two to...

    WASHINGTON -- Democrats need to reach out to voters who oppose abortion rights and promote candidates who share that view, the head of the party said Friday. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told a group of college Democrats that their party has to change its approach in the debate over abortion. "I think we need to talk about this issue differently," said Dean. "The Republicans have painted us as a pro- abortion party. I don't know anybody in America who is pro-abortion." Dean's approach echoed similar arguments advanced in recent months by former President Clinton and Sen....

    Where are the Hamptons Deaniacs? Some of New York’s wealthiest Dem contributors were no-shows at a $5,000-per-couple Amagansett DNC fund-raiser Howard Dean hosted at the home of Margo and Robert Alexander on July 9—prompting worries that the donor elite are shutting their wallets to protest Dean’s shoot-from-the-lip party leadership. Sources say big-shot supporters Hassan Nemazee, Robert Zimmerman, Carl Spielvogel, and Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel played hooky. “Dean grew up in the Hamptons, and it was his first time back as chair, so he should have filled the room,” concedes a DNC official. “DNC staffers were really disappointed. It spoke to the lack...

Howie-boy has come under a lot of fire lately with pundits of all stripes referring to him as a loose cannon, irresponsible, a crackpot, and Republicans can barely conceal their glee, begging for more vintage Howard.

    Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean, who's taken some heat for his hot rhetoric, kept it cool in a visit to Houston on Friday, quietly pressing the Democratic case to a group of Indian-American physicians. "We are reaching out to groups all over the country like this one," Dean said, adding that he plans to travel to India next winter. "This party is a party that believes in diversity." Dean also is scheduled to headline fund-raisers in Austin, Corpus Christi and Dallas during his Texas visit. "Unlike previously, we are actually going to spend money in Texas," Dean said after his...
