Many of us are familiar with Mr. Dean from his run for the presidency in 2004. Prior to that, he served as Governor of Vermont for six terms from 1991 to 2003. Mr. Dean was elected as chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2005, serving until 2009. As Chair, he was lead strategist, spokesman and fundraiser for the DNC. Mr. Dean is credited with pioneering an energetic 50-state strategy and the development of 21st century campaign tools that helped Democrats make historic gains in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Before entering politics, he worked as a physician. Mr. Dean currently works as an independent consultant focusing on the areas of health care, early childhood development, alternative energy, and the expansion of grassroots politics around the world. He also continues to be active in Democratic Party politics. We talk with Howard Dean about U.S. foreign policy.
