Dean in Maine 

Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean spoke in Portland’s Longfellow Square.

Dean is in Maine doing what he does best: rallying the troops.

The one-time presidential candidate is stumping for Barack Obama and Tom Allen, and is here mainly speaking to and about young people.

Other talking points included the war in Iraq and the economy.

&quot:People really want change in this country, and there’s only one candidate left that can provide that kind of change, and his name is Barack Obama.&quot: Dean told the gathered crowd.

The GOP has responded to Howard Dean’s statements with their own thoughts, saying &quot:Obama’s costly policies will crush Maine families and Maine small businesses trying to make ends meet in these tough economic times.&quot:
