Howard Dean is upset because he did not get the cabinet position he wanted HHS. THe gov. from Kansas is Obama's newest pick for it. Dean said he was not even vetted for the position and that as a doctor he is more qualified than Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Why do you think that Obama did not even consider Dean? Would he have been a better pick?

I've never forgiven that man for the way I feel he pushed Hillary Clinton aside and I'm frankly glad he's out of the picture. There's something about bullying. Even those who may have benefited from it sometimes don't want the bully on their team.

I've been trying to find where Dean said he's upset or even that he wanted the position. I haven't heard that but I've only had it on MSNBC today. I have no idea why President Obama didn't consider Dean, if he didn't, and I think he'd have been a great choice. It seems that as a doctor he'd be more qualified but I don't think we've ever had a doctor in that position, have we? Personally I think his first pick, Tom Daschle, was the best one and it's very unfortunate he had a tax issue to prevent him from doing it. Annie

Go to cnn or cnn's online site. They did a story on it. Personally I think a doctor would be a good choice. There are several in congress. They know how the medical system works from the inside. I think that would be a better choice.

Howard Dean is a BAFFOON . A bungling oaf. He was Vermont's state wide village idiot. I live right on the Vermont border and know a lot of people who live there, my daughter included, who is a die hard democrat, and not a one of them ever had a good thing to say about him. you can be sure if he had gotten toe position he would have enacted every feel goody policy he couldget is struggling clumbsy hands around. The entire nation would probably be under investigation by child services, all our kids would have been on psych meds of some sort and god only knows what else. All I can say is, I don't know how this Kansas governor is going to be but, WHEW!
