Yes, he's a white man, but hear me out.

He is s seasoned politician who has fought unhesitatingly for Democratic causes here at home and helping like-minded parties get organized abroad once "his work was done here." He has been involved in raising awareness for humanitarian causes in Africa and Asia. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty, and is also very much known for talking straight and getting things done where they looked impossible. His liberal politics would make him credible to the Palestinians and his wife is Jewish, so Israel would not feel an enemy in him, either.

I recommend him NOT because he is a friend. I'd probably see less of him than I do now if he got this job. But he'd be one HELL of an American Secretary of State. My greater fear is that if he were approached, he'd say, naaah, not interested. But I'd be one proud American if he were to take the job. I can think of few better to bring the energy and enthusiasm necessary for the post, and the experience abroad necessary to do it.

His name is Howard Dean. He was cut out of Obama's first administration mostly because Rahm Emmanuel was still pissed at him for being right about the 50 State Strategy in 2006--hardly a legitimate reason to exclude one of our most able people from serving the country in a greater capacity than as a guest on the talk shows, not that he has limited himself to that by any stretch of the imagination.

It would be great to see Dean with any role in the Obama administration. I hope something can be worked out.

Well if Pres. Clinton is in charge of 'splanin' stuff then maybe Gov. Dean could be in charge of screaming at the obstinate?

I was unaware of his work abroad. Thanks for sharing that, DFW.

Howard just came from a long overland march from Bangkok to the Burmese border to raise awareness about human trafficking in the area. He just got back.
