    We need a substantial Senate majority to push our legislative agenda, and Virginia will now host two - count em, two - Democratic Senators.

    Let's pick that guy from Delaware.  I like him.

    •  Nope. Pick Howard Dean. n/t (4+ / 0-)

      •  wow, that's a thought...HOWARD DEAN! (6+ / 0-)

        YEAH!!  THE ORIGINAL!  He wasnt allowed to run for President, but why not VP?  
        His 50 state strategy surely worked.  He's bright, plain-spoken, good sense of humor, on the right side of issues.  Not a typical DC insider.  Former Governor.

         OBAMA --  DEAN  '08  

        Looks good on bumper sticker!

        Lots of good reasons:

        o Both O & D back the 50-state plan.

        o O would truly has "his" man in the DNC (until January).

        o Dean has been "vetted"—more like trial by fire—during the 2004 primary.

        o Healthcare was one of Dean's big issues.

        o Combining the Dean buzz with the Obama buzz would be explosive!

        Too much baggage.  And, in 2003/2004, we always had to worry about what he was going to say, and how it was going to be taken out of context by the traditional media.

        Dean is a good party chair, and there's maybe a future for him in the Senate when Leahey or Sanders retires.  He'll probably never be VP or Pres, though.

        And I say this as someone who was a Deaniac in the 2004 primary...
