Why not Howard Dean for Sec. of Health and Human Services?

Now that Daschle is out of the picture, everyone is wondering who Obama will put up for Secretary of Health and Human Services. If it were my choice, I'd go straight to Howard Dean.

Dean is, first of all, a Physician and knows the health field from the inside. Has head of the Democratic Party his 50 State Stratey was a masterpiece of organization and one of the reasons Obama carried so many states that were previously in the Republican Column. Dean is intelligent, articulate and a real presence when he appears on television or at rallies.

Now, as I understand it, there's friction between Dean and Rahm Emmanuel that ha to be overcome, but Rahm's personal crap should not be standing in the way of a real position in the Administration for Dean, who, after all his work, has been really, and insultingly, overlooked.

Re: indeed

It is very clear after the Obama team didnt even invite Dr. Dean to the event for the new DNC chief - that they want nothing to do with him.

Its disgraceful.
