Howard Dean for HHS Secretary



Daschle dodged taxes and took big dough from the companies he was going to have to regulate. We've all heard that song before, and we're bone tired of it.

Dean, in contrast, is squeaky clean, he's wielded executive authority as a governor, he's built winning political coalitions against long odds as a party chairman, but even more than that, he's a real live M. D.

Pick a primary-care doctor rather than an industry lackey to run health care reform? How novel is that?

Rahm doesn't like him. Won't happen... on the wrong side of the Chicago guys.

Rahm liked Daschle and hated Dean's50-state strategy. Gotta love that kind of acumen.

My money says Rahm will be out before the end of the first term.

Besides, you know, team of rivals and all that.

He would certainly be an entertaining pick, but as other have noted, I doubt it'll happen.

Yes! Howard Dean for HHS! Best choice. People don't want a wishy-washy tax evader.

Folks nead to do their own investigative reporting before issuing blind endorsements. Our nation needs and deserves it. Dean subjected a group of indiginous peoples to rascist tirade (Abenaki) used his clout to get his kid off a nighttime buglary arrest. signed VTs gay rights bill under durres. And just cost the DNC s six figure sum in a sexual discrimination lawsuit. Regardless of his campagning atributes this guy is a time bomb waiting to explode. Find ten ex-employees who actually liked working for him.

Rahm, Axelrod, Jarrett...wh\ere all subpoenaed by Fitzgerald within five days of Obama's election; including their records eight years back.

Blagojevich may well bring them all down before the end of this year (especially when Blagojevich gets his hands on the tapes in the trial...he'll be given access to everything Fitz brings against him). He certainly have reason too now and little to lose.

Problem is he'll probably bring this Prez down with him. It's going to be a never ending fiasco that cripples the nation.
