More on Dean in Nashville

From The Tennessean. They don't quote the line I quoted, which I got from a clip on local TV news last night, but the short article is worth reading to get a sense of how Dean is approaching the South. Here's a positive example, in my opinion:

''We need to talk about values and not be afraid of them,'' he said, going on to make two biblical references.

In the first he said Jesus' directive to ''love thy neighbor'' didn't mean one could choose which ones to love. He then remarked that Republicans never brought up the scriptural verse saying it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.

''We should never let anybody tell us we don't respect faith,'' he said.

I just hope he got his Bible references right this time.
