Dang! What a week to miss The McLaughlin Group. Mark my words. If Eleanor Clift brought up Howard Dean as the head of HHS during the show, Monica Crowley’s empty head would explode.
Now that Tom Daschle is out of the running, Obama needs to move quickly to pick a new health czar. One prominent Democrat has made no secret of the fact that he would love the job and that’s Howard Dean. He’s a doctor; his wife is a doctor; and he’s not beholden to anyone. In fact, Dean was running against the entrenched special interests.
