Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean spoke to about 100 senior citizens in Claremont, New Hampshire on Monday. Dean has faced accusations that he sided with Newt Gingrich on cutting Medicare in the 1990s. Dean told the crowd he still thinks Medicare is badly run. But he said his record as governor of Vermont proves his commitment to health care and to senior citizens.
Dean continues his tour of college campuses this afternoon at Keene State College and the University of New Hampshire in Durham.
