In a symbol of unity, Howard Dean and John Kerry joined hands and raised them high for the cameras on Wednesday. Kerry and Dean met in Washington to talk about what role the former Vermont governor might play in Kerry’s campaign.
The Massachusetts senator is hoping to come away with Dean’s endorsement. He has the same hopes for a meeting on Thursday with another key rival, John Edwards. The Bush campaign, though, is playing up some of Dean’s criticisms of Kerry during the Democratic primary campaign.
