''Dean wants Prog-Dem peace pact''

"MONTPELIER, Vt. If Democrats give Bernie Sanders a clear shot at the U-S Senate next year, Progressives should return the favor by staying out of other races.

That's the view of former Governor Howard Dean. Dean is now chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Dean says the election of the independent Sanders to the U-S Senate would be good for Democrats nationally, because Sanders works well with Democrats in Washington.
He says he understands that some Vermont Democrats would like to run for the seat being opened by the retirement of Senator James Jeffords.
Dean says if Democrats agree not to run for the Senate, Progressives should agree not to run for other statewide offices like the U-S House and lieutenant governor."-from the AP story via Channel 3, Burlington (VT).
