I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Howard Dean After The Scream 'Where's The Reform?'

Howard Dean has proven to be resilient and able to redefine himself in the face of adversity...we've seen it after the scream when he took over the DNC and with Dean's fifty state strategy that helped elect Obama as well as many other Democrats...

But when Obama came into the White House, I watched in disbelief as Rahm and Obama froze Howard Dean out of their administration. They essentially ask him to leave and slammed the door behind him.

Then another slight...Howard Dean, a former governor and health care advocate and doctor, was given no chance by Obama for Health and Human Services secretary. Over and over, the Obama people publicly and willfully have insulted Howard Dean...Not content to just ignore him, they kicked him to the curb and spit on him...but now Dean may have the last laugh...abetted it's a very sad one...

With no obligation to the Obama administration, Howard Dean can freely speak openly about the mis-fires, mis-steps and mistakes of the Obama Health Care reform debauchery. The White House would like to characterize this fight as Howard Dean vs. the White House...but it's really about Americans vs Big Corporate Health care Companies profit while we die...A reform bill without a public option and a medicare buy-in option is essentially rewarding the industry that got us to this point, and Dean says as much...

Look, like Howard Dean, I want health care reform, Americans need it, my family needs it...but that's not what's being offered with this bill...not since Joe Lieberman dictated the terms. They might as well allowed the health care lobbyist to write the bill! Er..? "Are we going to have real health care reform, or, are we not?"

"Look, I'm not a perfect person. I have my warts. I sometimes say things that get me in trouble. I wear suits that are cheap. But I say what I think and I believe what I say, and I'm willing to say things that are not popular but ordinary people know are right." --Howard Dean
