Howard Dean, former DNC chair and guy whose presidential campaign was ruined because he got excited once, was on Morning Joe today, to talk President Donald Trump and the future of progressive politics, particularly in the 2018 midterm elections.
Dean gave Sen. Bernie Sanders much of the credit for boosting the idea of universal healthcare, but stopped short of saying he should be the party’s nominee 2020. Why? He’s too old, as is Dean himself.
“I’m very much for someone who is younger. I think my generation needs to get the hell out of politics,” he said. “Start coaching and start moving up this next generation who are more, I think, fiscally sane.”
