VA Kaine Supporter on Dean

One of the guys doing some the grassroots legwork for VA Governor candidate Tim Kaine writes about Dean as "southern comfort."
For starters, Southern Democrats now have an ally in Washington: someone who understands the critical importance of the South, and someone who believes in the same things that they do – fiscal responsibility, faith and family. They’ve also got someone willing to fight hard for the South, who has pledged to rebuild the Democratic Party in the most conservative parts of America, and who emphasized all this by stating, "I'll pretty much be living in red states in the South and West for quite a while." Finally, the Tim Kaines and Mark Warners of the world now have someone in Washington DC who believes, as they do, in being a real "uniter not a divider" -- as opposed to certain other politicians in Washington who, it turns out, are "all hat and no cattle" on this issue.

We here at RaisingKaine.com would like to congratulate Dr. Dean on his election as DNC Chairman, wish him well, and invite him down here to Virginia both early and often. Because, in Howard Dean, what we’ve got is some serious "Southern Comfort" by way of Vermont. Welcome to the South, Governor Dean!

And here I thought you guys would have this great and wonky rant on the Dean v Perle debate from last week.

Kev and I attended...(see PK for details). It was AMAZING.

Btw...Kev gave me two signed Dean books for Christmas.

Yes...I came here to make you jealous. How'd I do? :)
