Dean defends confederate flag/pickup truck remarks.

"During a mid-day meeting with Johnston High School students, the Democratic presidential candidate was asked about a recent comment that he wants to be the candidate 'for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.'
Dean said he has used the description to refer to working class, white Southerners who vote Republican when it's not in their interest to do so because of GOP policies such as tax cuts benefiting wealthy Americans"

Rival Democrat Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts said Monday that Dean was failing to take responsibility for what he said and was trying instead to "walk back from a very ugly and divisive symbol."
