Governor Dean's speech
It's a new Democratic Party. And we are going to be a national party. We went to Mississippi two weeks after taking control of the party. Haley Barbour is the new governor and the GOP took the senate for the first time since Reconstruction. And 8 people in the House of Representatives stand between Haley Barbour and cutting 50000 people off Medicaid and impoverishing the poorest. We have an obligation to support those 8 state reps in Mississippi because those 50000 people who need health insurance are our people, and even if everything is fine in our state or in our family, we need to work hard and make sure that thsoe in Mississippi don't lose their health insurance because the Democratic Party wasn't strong enough to protect them.
