Howard Dean heads for a socialist conference.

Politics: Just a reminder what the democratic party has become.

MADRID, Sept 4, 2006 (AFP) - US Democratic Party chief Howard Dean and possible French Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal will attend a conference organised by Spain's ruling Socialists in mid-September. It will be the first time that the head of the Democrats will attend such a conference, Jose Blanco of the Socialist (PSOE) party said. Royal is expected in Madrid on September 15 and 16 and will take part in a debate together with Spanish Vice-President Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega, according to a programme published on Monday. Royal said in a television interview on Monday that she was also due to meet Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero during the visit, who will close the conference on September 17. Dean, a vocal opponent of the US invasion of Iraq, serves as chairman of the Democratic National Committee and ran to be the party's presidential nominee in 2004, losing the candidacy to John Kerry.
