WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Vice President Dick Cheney slammed Democratic Party boss Howard Dean as “over the top” in a television interview to air on Monday, saying Dean had helped Republicans more than Democrats.
“I think Howard Dean’s over the top. I’ve never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I’ve never met anybody who does,” Cheney told Fox News Channel.
“So far, I think he’s probably helped us more than he has them. That’s not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party,” Cheney said.
