Dean Bows Out; Draws Praise from Kerry

February 18, 2004 - Posted at 3:25 p.m. CDT

 

DAYTON, OH - John Kerry can afford to speak well of Howard Dean, now that the former Vermont governor has dropped out of the presidential race.

Kerry says he doesn't hold a grudge for anything Dean said about him during the campaign.

For one thing, Dean has referred to Kerry as the "hand maiden of special interests."

But Kerry today says he has great respect for Dean's ability to bring disaffected workers back into politics.

As he pulled out of the race today, Dean didn't endorse either of his major rivals, though he has suggested that John Edwards would make a better candidate than Kerry. 

Dean says he'll support the party's nominee, whoever it is.
