20. Huh? Get the Dean chip off of the shoulder. . .
. . .Dean is not the story! I support him doing what he is doing and I an thankful for it. But John Kerry should not be expected to deal with controversies that Howard Dean creates. I think everybody wants Dean's support, but if that support comes with a price of having to defend him every time he mouths off (which I want him to keep doing) then his support is not worth it.
