It was on the Aaron Harber show. I am about half way through. It looks like at least 25 minutes. Very good interview.

He is pretty candid about the plans for the 50 states, his views on primaries, etc.

Here is the link. It says it is to air on May 25 and 27 locally on KDBI TV.

Here is an article with some quotes from that interview.

Dean said Thursday the days of the $60 million political convention coronations are numbered

Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said Thursday the days of the $60 million political convention coronations are numbered and he's studying ways to make them more relevant to average people.

Dean said politicians need to find more ways to connect with voters, going door to door, instead of depending on television to deliver their messages. He said next year's convention in Denver will be different.

"We've got to change the way we do conventions in this country. I'm looking to try to make this a transitional convention, in the sense that the day of the $50-$60 million convention is coming to a close. The day of one-way campaigns where we do everything on television, and we don't listen to people before, is coming to a close. We need to be knocking on doors, talking to them directly, asking their opinions," Dean said during an interview on the Aaron Harber show on KDBI-TV.


One thing surprised me. He is not in favor of regional or national primaries as it would hurt candidates with less resources.
