VPR Interview: Howard Dean

Print More

President-elect Barack Obama meets with economic advisers today, and will hold a press conference outlining his economic strategies this afternoon.

And after naming Congressman Rahm Emmanuel to be his White House Chief of Staff, speculation is growing about who else will be tapped to round out the cabinet posts.

A name Vermonters are familiar with is drawing speculation. Former Governor Howard Dean has for the past 4 years been Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, but his term is drawing to a close, and there are reports that Dean-a physician– is being mentioned as a possible candidate for Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb had a chance to speak with Governor Dean about his plans after his DNC Chairmanship expires…and about the strategies Dean and others in the Democratic Party used to help bring America its first-ever African
American President.
