WATCH: Howard Dean Owns Newt Gingrich in Immigration Debate

Howard Dean can be so awesome. Case in point: his Tuesday night smack-down debate with Newt Gingrich about immigration and other hot-button topics. Speaking at a student-sponsored event at George Washington University, the two traded several barbs, but the most awesome moment was when Dean fought back against Gingrich's BS-spewing on the DREAM Act. "I don't go for this anti-immigration stuff," Dean said. "Why should [an immigrant] have to be a second-class citizen? What's this 'residency' crap? Why do we have to do that?"
