Howard Dean And Rick Santorum Sound Off At Northwestern
On Tuesday night in Pick-Staiger Auditorium, onetime presidential hopeful and former Governor of Vermont Howard Dean and former Senator Rick Santorum squared off. Despite claiming to agree on the majority of issues, Dean and Santorum clashed over the state of the country, the role of the youth, LGBT issues -- and even disagreed over the ideal level of disagreement in politics. As the debate progressed from general ideological differences and President Obama to more specific issues like the deficit and terrorism, the tone of the debate became more conversational and relaxed. In particular, both men generally agreed on Israel, the importance of the deficit and the threat of terrorism.
