Howard Dean responds to Newt's bigger payday

The stage: Cape Girardeau School in Missouri

The sponsor: Southeast Missouri State University

The forum: A debate on health care

The participants: Howard Dean and Newt Gingrich

The issue: Newt's getting $58,450 for the appearance; Dean only $27,000.

Dean's response:

“There’s nothing I can do about it, as I found out. I think the only thing that makes me feel a little bit better about that is that it’s the most expensive event that Southeast Missouri has ever done — and it’s not my fault.”
