Howard Dean for head of the Department of Health and Human Services

After Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination as head of the Department of Health and Human Services today, could Howard Dean possibly be nominated?

Republicans now hold 3 cabinet positions after Judd Gregg has been named Commerce Secretary (Defense, Transportation, and Commerce), so why not give 1 position to the Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party.

Dean is qualified for the job. He is a doctor and as Governor of Vermont he signed a bill making Vermont one of the first states with a universal health care system.

**Update**
Blog for Iowa wrote about an article at Huffington Post that discusses more of Dean's qualifications.

I think that's a grand idea! Dean rather got the short end of the stick after the election I thought, and I do think he had a lot to do with Obama's election success. Linked to ya!
