My letter to the editor, in response to the article New Lieberman ad takes swipe at Dean

I was disappointed to read about Joe Lieberman’s swipe at Howard Dean, “New Lieberman ad takes swipe at Dean”, Nov 14. "I don't think it's right to have raised a divisive symbol like the confederate flag” Lieberman is quoted as saying.

What I don’t think is right is for Lieberman to attack a fellow Democrat for encouraging people who have stopped voting as Democrats to look at the issues that really matter and return to the Democratic party.

Lieberman is the person raising the divisive symbol. Howard Dean is the person speaking to people who may seem different from us about the importance of jobs, healthcare and education.

We need a president who can talk to all people about these important issues.
