Open House: A new Dean fundraising letter, trumpeting Al Gore's endorsement, closes with the following line:

And I look forward to January 20th, 2005, when we follow the example of another great Tennessean, Andrew Jackson -- we will throw open the doors to the White House and let the American people back in.

I assume that Dean only means this metaphorically; when Andrew Jackson actually opened the doors to the White House in 1829, we all know how that turned out.

(Isn't it odd, though, that a candidate so solicitous of Native Americans would offhandedly refer to the architect of the Trail of Tears as "another great Tennessean"?)
