BLACKER TOAST:

Key Blacks Back Dean for DNC Chair (NewsMax, 1/25/05)

Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor whose appeal with minorities was questioned during his presidential race, won support Tuesday from several key black Democratic National Committee members for his bid to be DNC chairman.

Dean, one of seven candidates for the chair position, won the support of Yvonne Atkinson Gates, chair of the DNC's black caucus, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois and Minyon Moore, a longtime DNC member and former aide to President Clinton.


You'd assume this dooms him, because the party hasn't given blacks more than lip service in twenty years, but at least he's got a minyon.

"Key Blacks Back Dean." I defy you to say that five times fast.

Dean can't be doomed until after Al Gore endorses him.

I'm sorry, I didn't know that anyone really cared anymore what thought or who I endorsed. Yes, I endorse Dr. Dean for head of the DNC. --Al Gore
