Dean under consideration for surgeon general: report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Howard Dean, a practicing physician before entering politics, was under consideration by the Obama administration for the post of U.S. surgeon general, CNN reported Friday.

Dean, who recently wrapped up a four-year term as Democratic Party chairman, has been a supporter of health reform, and has privately made clear that he is interested in the job, according to the cable network.

3. If it's true, it's about fargin' time.
If not true, someone needs to get to work and make it true.

4. General Dean!
The largely ceremonial aspect of the job is disquieting, though.

6. It's has to be true
I just returned my money request to the DNC with this written on it, "When Howard is rewarded, I'll give money." I gave about $1500 to the DNC last year.
