Howard Dean Urges Progressives: 'Get Mad After Nov. 5th'

Jim Dean has a message for Crooks and Liars readers.

Philadelphia progressives turned out last night at the South Philadelphia Taproom to support Democracy for America, and to hear Gov. Howard Dean rally the troops for this year's congressional midterms.

The former Vermont governor told activists he understood that they were angry, "but you can be as pissed off as you want after Nov. 5th." He also talked about how important it was for young people to stay involved, pointing out that Obama's election was the first decided by voters under 35, "not voters over 65."

DFA President Jim Dean worked the crowd, telling fundraiser attendees how much DFA needed their support.
Both brothers made it clear they understood people's anger, but urged them not to give up and to keep on fighting.
