Left of Center


From Associated Press: Lieberman: Dean Pulling Dems Too Far Left.

"[Howard Dean] seems to be pulling some of the other candidates back to the old Democratic ways that did not work -- high taxes, big spending, weaknesses on security," [presidential candidate Joe] Lieberman said. "I feel a real responsibility to speak out for the best traditions of the Democratic Party." [...]

Dean has dismissed Lieberman's criticism, saying, "I am in the center."

And this New York Post op-ed by Deborah Orin notes shades of Clinton in Dean: Is Dean being honest? Well, define 'honest'.
