Dean rallies Keene students (Generation Dean),1413,102~8860~1681679...

KEENE, N.H. -- Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean told an audience of 700 at Keene State College Monday that those between the ages of 18 and 30, dubbed "Generation Dean" by his campaign, have the power to take the country back.


Theodore Talcott, a student at the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vt., said he saw many things he liked in Dean, including his honesty. "He speaks very clearly on the way things have gone wrong in this country and what we can do to fix it," he said. "Just like Ralph Nader, he doesn't seem like a politician. He seems honest."

Deirdre Chretien, a Keene resident who takes some classes at the college, said she "threw her vote away for Nader" in 2000. Next year she plans to support Dean. "I like what he had to say about repealing the tax cuts and his thoughts on health insurance," she said.


Then suddenly, Dean was gone, the trio of vans taking a right turn off the campus and heading toward Main Street. "When you see someone like him running for the presidency, it gives you a good feeling in your stomach," said Rep. Tim Dunn, D-Keene, to Rep. John Pratt, D-Walpole, as they watched him go.
