Barack Obama Rips Dean
The number of high-profile Democrats slamming Howard Dean’s comments of late continues to grow...Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) criticized Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean Wednesday night for using “religion to divide.”
Obama told reporters gathered at the Rock the Vote awards dinner at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., that Dean needs to tone down his rhetoric. Dean said on Monday that the Republican Party was “pretty much a white, Christian party.”
“As somebody who is a Christian myself, I don’t like it when people use religion to divide, whether that is Republican or Democrat,” Obama said. “I think in terms of his role as party spokesman, [Dean] probably needs to be a little more careful and I suspect that is a message he is going to be getting from a number of us,” Obama explained.
“We are at a time in our country’s history that inclusive language is better than exclusive language,” he added.
