33. The story at the link proves that you are wrong....

"It's hard to criticize the president when you've got troops in the field," the former Vermont governor said during a two-day campaign swing through South Carolina to raise money and meet with potential supporters and party activists.

"We all have got to support the troops. They didn't send themselves over there, and they're doing their jobs for the country."

But in an interview with The State newspaper, Dean stressed he's not changing his position on the Iraqi war, which he still thinks will get the United States into serious trouble.

It will make America more vulnerable to terrorist attacks, he said, and attacking a nation that's not an imminent threat to the United States "sets an example for everyone else and gives justification to others to do the same thing."

Dean clearly, in the story you link to, attacks Bush's policy and continues to stand against the war that Kerry supported.
