Dean brings campaign back to South Carolina
Advertisements [?]
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Vermont Gov. Howard Dean brought his surging presidential campaign back to South Carolina after months away on Friday, telling a crowd of mostly students at the College of Charleston they have a chance to take back America.


Throughout the crowd were Generation Dean signs and the visit was a stop on a tour that will take Dean to seven college campuses around the country in four days. Dean didn't mention his Democratic opponents, but took aim at George Bush.

"South Carolinians have voted Republican for 30 years," said Dean, who appeared on stage with no jacket and blue short-sleeve shirt. "Tell me what you have to show for it?"

"Nothing! Nothing!" several in the crowd shouted back.

"The Legislature cut $73 million out of the public school system. Jobs gone to other countries especially in textiles. People haven't had raises in five years because their health insurance premiums took their raise in pay," Dean said.

"If you're satisfied with that, you ought to vote for George Bush," he said. "But maybe you ought to vote Democratic again. Because when white people and black people and brown people vote together in this country, that's when we make social progress."
