Howard Dean & Colmes

Reported by Deborah - January 13, 2005

Alan Colmes aired a great exclusive interview with Howard Dean tonight. Dean,who recently announced that he is running for the DNC chair, responded to Colmes' well thought out questions with candor and strength. Hannity's expression at the end of the segment was priceless. 1/13/05

Dean claimed that the DNC is in the best financial condition ever since the election which would allow the DNC to get some things done adding that he admired the discipline and organization of the Republican Party and Democrats must improve in this area.

Dean mentioned the Stockholm Syndrome affecting the Democrats causing them to lean toward the the right which he said is a mistake.Dean believes that Democrats should differentiate themselves from the Republicans and stand up for their beliefs proudly adding that Newt Gingrich does this well.

Colmes asked him about the high price of the inaugauration and Dean said it was too glitzy claiming that no party should spend that much when the money is needed for so many things. In his direct style, Dean mentioned that this swearing in is funded by lobbyists who will want favors in return.

Dean stated that pro life Democrats should be treated with more repect by the party because pro life Democrats will take care of the child's life after birth unlike Republicans. He also declared that the South should play a bigger role in the Party which he intends to iniate if elected.

When Colmes asked Dean for some key points that the Democratic Party should stress, he said fiscal responsibility and honesty claiming that Republicans have never balanced a budget and can't be trusted with our money.

FNC has avoided an uncut view of Dean in the past beacuse they didn't want viewers to see how powerful, sensible and direct he can be. Hannity has painted Dean as far left and unbalanced which couldn't be farther from the truth.In fact, people in Vermont claimed that he was far too conservative for their taste. Yet the media efficiently distorted his image making him seem too unstable for the presidency.Also that horrific ad in Iowa by Club For Growth followed by the Dean Scream campaign finished him off during the campaign.Dean is just what the DNC needs right now and Hannity knows it, so we can expect some brutal attacks in the future.
