    Democratic National Committee ^ | September 15, 2005 | Howard Dean
    Governor Dean wrote the following op-ed for national distribution:John Roberts is a decent family man and a bright, articulate, thoughtful judge. He has a quality absent in previous right wing candidates like Antonin Scalia and Robert Bork, namely a judicial temperament that makes litigants feel that they have been respectfully heard whether they are on the winning or losing side of a verdict.But John Roberts is the wrong man for the job. Despite the fact that the White House has withheld key documents either out of incompetence or a fear that those documents might prove embarrassing, we have learned enough...

    Washington - Faced with a growing scandal surrounding the involvement of Deputy White House chief of Staff Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff Lewis Libby in the leaking the identity of a covert CIA operative, President Bush announced his nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court late this evening. Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean today issued the following statement on the nomination: "It is disappointing that when President Bush had the chance to bring the country together, he instead turned to a nominee who may have impressive legal credentials, but also has sharp partisan credentials that...

    Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | July 19, 2005 | David M. Brown
    It's been called the "scream heard 'round the world." Now it's echoing in Pittsburgh. Howard Dean was the Democratic front-runner in the 2004 presidential campaign until he responded to losing the Iowa caucus with a frenzied speech and wild whoop. Instead of rallying his troops, Dean's rant on national TV became one of the most laughed-at moments in political history and took the steam out of the former Vermont governor's bid for the White House. Republicans plan to poke more fun at the episode when Dean, now chairman of the Democratic National Committee, appears today at a Democratic Party event...

    Why the media loves the disastrous Howard Dean and doesn't understand the greatness of Ken Mehlman.THERE ARE THREE MEDIA ANALYSTS who command wide readership and deserve their influence--Jay Rosen of NYU, who writes PressThink, Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine and now the New York Times, and Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post.Of the three, Kurtz commands the largest audience because he has managed the old media-new media divide admirably, writing for both audiences with humor and spark.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Press Office 202-863-8614 WASHINGTON – RNC Press Secretary Tracey Schmitt issued the following statement regarding Howard Dean’s comments today at the “Campaign for America’s Future” conference:“Howard Dean’s diatribe today illustrates that the Democrat Party not only lacks leadership but is overflowing with anger. His comment that a lot of Republicans have never made an honest living in their lives makes it clear that Dean’s priority is to generate mudslinging headlines rather than engage in substantive debate. The record number of hard working Americans who voted for President Bush prefer leaders who address their concerns as opposed...

    ATLANTA - Howard Dean, the former presidential candidate now heading the national Democratic Party, says Georgia could "shape up as pretty important" to his party in next year's elections despite its drift into the Republican column. "We've got an important governor's race I think we can win and important congressional races," Dean said Tuesday in an interview in advance of a swing through Atlanta for a "low-dollar," $50-per-person party fund-raiser. Money from Thursday's event will go to the national party, but it won't stay there, he said, explaining it will be used to hire staffers to help in party-building efforts...

    Less Howard Dean, more FDR   . . .

Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.--"As You Like It," Act II, Scene 7 WITH THE INSTALLATION of Howard Dean as Democratic party chairman, modern American liberalism...

    For those of you just waiting for Howard Dean to start making gaffes, see the Saturday Washington Post account of his tour through the party's special-interest caucuses. I'm somewhat shocked the Post publicized this little tour. For pure, unadulterated Dean, you get this: "You are among the most persecuted people in the history of mankind," Dean tells his first audience, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus. Let's hope the African-American caucus didn't hear that. (Not to mention anyone who remembers the Holocaust, the Huguenots, throwing Christians to the lions...) As for what Dean said to the black caucus, he...

    Remarks made by Governor Howard Dean on the Future of the Democratic Party. Given at The George Washington University on December 8, 2004. Thank you for that introduction. It's a pleasure to be here.Let me tell you what my plan for this Party is:We're going to win in Mississippi ...and Alabama ...and Idaho ...and South Carolina. Four years ago, the President won 49 percent of the vote. The Republican Party treated it like it was a mandate, and we let them get away with it.Fifty one percent is not a mandate either. And this time we're not going to let...

    Kerry is closing inPRINCETON, NJ -- Monday's Iowa caucuses produced the political equivalent of an earthquake, shifting the fates of the Democratic presidential candidates with speed and shock value. Now that the Iowa winner, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, has the "big mo" and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (who came in third) is trying to find the ground beneath his feet, the political expectation is that Kerry will get a bounce in voter support in New Hampshire. He could even go on to win this jewel in the crown of state primaries next week.It will take more than one day,...
