Where is Howard Dean

I heard on one of the news shows that Howard Deans deserves a lot of credit for getting the GOTV movement started with new media back in 04. I haven't heard from him in awhile but I totally aggree with the pundit that said it.

10. Post-election analysis, generally.

Only had half an ear on him, as my daughter and I were talking. She shook his hand, back in 2004 at a rally here. My kids and I remain strong admirers of Dr. Dean.

11. I like Dr. Dean, too

He represents the "Democratic wing of the Democratic Party"

3. Don't you think that DFA meet-ups were also a precursor for at least some aspects of

the Occupy. I went to lots of DFA meet-ups and, though they didn't follow the Occupy process, horizontal empowerment was what it was ALL about, that and action, not just meetings.

8. At this moment, Howard is getting ready for a trip to the far east

Howard told me in February 2009 that if he got shut out of the Obama administration that he would spend his time "raising hell for causes he believed in."

He was, as usual, true to his word. This is his latest.

I posted about this already. Not one response.

13. Well, THAT generated a lot of interest!

Four years is a glacial age in politics.

12. Interview on British media (I think it was the BBC)

in which he said he thinks that "going over the fiscal cliff" (ie letting the earlier tax-raising and spending agreement go ahead) is the best option. Which will be an interesting stance to take.

14. I think the Democratic Party can't control Dean

 

so they fear him and try to marginalize him.
