Don't go to Iowa.
Go to New Jersey. Read more about Howard Dean redux
Howard Dean just gets stranger and more incoherent as he goes. He criticizes the WH for its contempt for liberals and know it all attitude but then goes on to support Mr. NAFTA Bill Daley for WH Chief of Staff because he's an adult and will give the beyond Washington view, or at least as much of it as can be seen from his offices at JPMorgan Chase.

Nothing's happened so far except schlepping along with whatever was happening before. Maybe he's sleeping under that big Presidential desk, the way George did.

BARACK: Rahm, look at my eyes.
RAHM: A little less beady today.
BARACK: Because I'm REFRESHED. I finally found a way to sleep in my office. Under the desk. I lie on my back. I tuck in the chair. I'm invisible.
RAHM: Sounds like a really cool fort.
Today, Chris Matthews asked Howard Dean for his interpretation of the results in Massachusetts. Howard told him that it was because voters wanted more than they were getting from Washington and that they were angry at Washington. He also said that Coakley's defeat was due not only to Independents voting for Brown, but also to progressives who either voted for him, or decided to stay home. Read more about Chris Badgers Howard
In Washington, when major bills near final passage, an inside-the-Beltway mentality takes hold. Any bill becomes a victory. Clear thinking is thrown out the window for political calculus. In the heat of battle, decisions are being made that set an irreversible course for how future health reform is done. The result is legislation that has been crafted to get votes, not to reform health care.
The solid front of Democratic Party progressives supporting the Senate's health care form bill, has now cracked wide open with Howard Dean's call to kill the Senate bill and start over in the House with reconciliation. Read more about Why They Don't Want To Use Reconciliation

This is truly disgusting:
Dean's so-called "50-state strategy," which has sent paid organizers in state parties across the country — including heavily Republican stalwarts like Mississippi and Indiana — has been mocked by some as naive and ineffective. And his effort to create a national voter database within the DNC has been challenged by operatives, including Hillary Clinton adviser Harold Ickes, who have created a for-profit company building a competing voter file.
