Former United States Senator Carol Moseley Braun is quiting the race for the White House and backing Howard Dean. Her endorsement ads to a growing list of prominent African-American leaders who are supporting the former Vermont Governor.
Braun defended Dean at a debate in Iowa on Sunday when civil rights activist Al Sharpton questioned Dean's racial hiring record while Vermont governor. Trippi said Dean and Braun talked after the debate and get along personally.
Braun went after Sharpton for attacking Dean, telling him "you can always blow up a racial debate and make people mad at each other. But I think it's time for us to talk about, what are you going to do to bring people together?" she said.
Former Texas Governor Ann Richards is also throwing her support behind Dean this week.
Maybe she'll take him on a bike ride across Texas in search of votes.
Finally, Howard Dean will go to church this Sunday with none other than former President Jimmy Carter.
Dean will visit with the former President in Plains and will attend the Sunday school class that Carter teaches. Hopefully, he'll learn where Job fits into the Bible.
This is all good news for our man Howard Dean.
