Graham on 'short list' for VP spot

By Bill Cotterell

Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean said Tuesday that Southerners must stop basing their votes on "race, guns, God and gays" and forge a multiracial coalition that focuses next year's presidential election on jobs, health care and a foreign policy reflecting American values.

In a wide-ranging luncheon address to the Capital Tiger Bay Club, the former Vermont governor also said U.S. Sen. Bob Graham is on his "short list" for vice president - if he wins the top spot at the Democratic National Convention in Boston next summer. Dean called Graham, who said Monday that he won't run for re-election to the Senate, "one of the greatest public servants in the United States."

An enthusiastic throng of Dean supporters filled the courtyard of the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center to greet Dean, the first active presidential candidate to campaign in Tallahassee.


Tiger Bay Club president Janet Hinkle told Dean he doesn't need to "whistle Dixie" when campaigning in the South. The political luncheon club presented him a NASCAR poster, an FSU ball cap and an empty beer can to carry around.
