Howard Dean, 2004 presidential candidate and former head of the Democratic National Committee, is warning Barack Obama of the tide of sentiment in the Democratic base that is turning against him.
“There are hundreds of thousands of people under 30 who slept on floors for two year to make sure Barack got elected. You can’t turn your back on those people because if you do, it’s going to be hard to find any friends,” Dean says.
Barack Obama has made it clear that he is an opponent of the liberals who make up the core of the Democratic Party. Howard Dean has committed not to run for President in 2012. Given that declaration, supporters of Howard Dean have a clear political home: Behind a campaign by Senator Russ Feingold for the Democratic nomination for President in 2012.
