Edwards and Biden Criticize Dean

Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) "are criticizing party chairman Howard Dean, saying his rhetorical attacks on Republicans have gone too far," the AP reports.

Dean recently said Republicans "never made an honest living in their lives and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence."

Ezra Klein joins the criticism and pinpoints where Dean crossed the line: "Nail them for what they've done, not what you think of them. DeLay's corruption is proven, his criminality is not. The leadership's myopia is obvious, their working habits are not. It's fine for Dean to punch hard, but even the newest fighter knows you have to hit from higher ground."
