HOWARD DEAN- I’m Ready for Hillary-By HOWARD DEAN

Liberal progressive legend Howard Dean-
"If I have the opportunity, I will cast my vote for Hillary Clinton for President."


http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/12/howard-dean-ready-for-hillary-113444.html#ixzz3LVejJQ9A

Hillary Clinton is by far the most qualified person in the United States to serve as President. If she runs, I will support her. I have known Hillary for almost twenty-five years. We first met when I was the governor of Vermont and she was the First Lady, giving us the opportunity to work together in various capacities, particularly on expanding health care access. During those years, I have learned that she is one of the most conscientious and competent people I have ever met. She has an enormous capacity to analyze and solve problems. She has a work ethic that drives her to persist until the job is done and done right. And she has a record in the Senate of successfully working with both sides of our very combative political spectrum in order to accomplish goals that improve the lives of ordinary Americans.


One of the most important reasons I am supporting her is because Secretary Clinton understands the institutional requirements of the Supreme Court. More than 73 percent of Americans think the Supreme Court is no longer a fair arbitrator and is influenced by political considerations. I am one of those 73 percent. This Court has repeatedly made decisions that have harmed our country for the sake of extending a political and ideological agenda that is far outside the mainstream of American traditions—on issues like campaign finance, voting rights, the rights of women, and religious freedom.

America needs a thoughtful President who will appoint judges and justices who will stand up for the Constitution and the law instead of catering to the dictates of those who fund the right-wing Federalist Society. I am confident that Hillary Clinton will provide that leadership.



America needs a President who will focus on the next hundred years, not one who hopes to turn the clock back by a hundred years. I am sure I will have disagreements with her as she focuses on getting Americans back to work and rebuilding an America that works for all of us. I value and respect her enough that whatever differences may exist will be minimal compared to the tasks we really need to do for the good of restoring our country. We need a mature, seasoned, thoughtful leader at a time when maturity and thoughtfulness are increasingly rare commodities in Washington, D.C.

2. Why do you keep posting links to a site most here cannot post on?

The article is for discussion here.

(btw-over there, the beloved legendary Dr. Dean is being sold down the river.
Doesn't that strike you as funny?

3. Doesn't strike me as "funny" at all

But that's because I was there in 2003 when the original DLC invasion took over DU and declared open warfare on Dr. Dean and all of those who supported him for President. Which was the majority of the board, before they arrived. The remainder were mostly Dennis Kucinich supporters. Nobody supported Skull & Bones Kerry or Clinton stalking horse Clark until those invaders took over.

Funny how that works, eh? Just like the O-bots in 2008.

4. Dean would have won in 2004. He had the fire in his belly.

5. I have no doubt at all that he would have beaten the Chimp easily

What the DLC did to him before and during the Iowa caucus was criminal.

I also think it's possible that Bob Graham might have been his VP. It's one of the names I heard mentioned most often in the Dean camp back in those days.

8. He couldn't even beat John Kerry

Exactly how was he going to beat Bush?

10. If you think about it, primary politics and general election politics

are two different animals.

So he may have beat bush, had he won the nomination.

Course he may have lost to bush too. It'a all just talk and speculation at this point.

9. Just wish there were more options for party health


This is an oft-cited criticism w/ the Democratic party but I am genuinely worried how there are no rising starts within the Dems. We see Paul Ryan and others in the GOP but w/ the Democrats, it's the same names being tossed around from the prior election. Love Hillary but aren't there more good dems out there to give her a good fight in the primaries? Someone who is a Dem but who would rally up a different demographic of America?

11. If one looks at West Virginia in 2008, Hillary completes 80% of America in 2016

Hillary brings in all the core (like me) supporters of the President Obama agenda,
plus all those who did not vote for him in 2008. That makes it at least 80% of the country
theoretically would vote for her

80-20, not a bad number.

12. Dean's a kiss ass

He's probably looking to get a position or a check. He has no ethics anymore. Supporting the worst candidate possible. Eat Shit Howard.
