Howard Dean strikes again. Fuzzy on Dem party platform

It's been a while since I've had to drag out my Howard Dean scream, but the other day, Mr. Dean reminded me, that there is still some life left in the mouth that roars.
A couple of days ago, Dean was on the 700 Club, and the subject of gay marriage came up and Mr. Dean said the following;
"The 2004 Democratic platform says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think we may take exception with some religious leaders in that we believe in inclusion, and that everybody deserves to live with respect, dignity, and equal right under the law".
Really, the 2004 Democratic platform I know doesn't say that at all. This is what it says.
We support full inclusion of gay and lesbian families in the life of our nation. We also seek equal responsibilities, benefits and protections for these families.
Can you say OOPS!!!???
Either Dean has some fuzziness with the Democratic party platform, or he just out and out screwed up. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt here, but this is just one more example of Dean being a less than stellar pick to lead the Democrats. Sometimes, Dean can be right on, rebutting Republican talking points and making a great case for Democrats and their agenda, and then he has times like this.
