QOTD — Howard Dean Running for President in 2016

Filed in National by on June 21, 2013

Netroots Nation is underway and Howard Dean made some news early on — he’d consider running for President again. Particularly if he thinks the field needs to be pushed towards more popular positions:

“I am not driven by my own ambition,” Dean told CNN in an interview at the Netroots Nation conference, an annual gathering of left-leaning political activists. “What I am driven by is pushing the country in a direction that it desperately needs to be pushed; pushing other politicians who aren’t quite as frank as I am who need to be more candid with the American people about what needs to happen. I am not trying to hedge, it’s a hard job running. It’s really tough. I am doing a lot of things I really enjoy. But you should never say never in this business.”

And yet, he admits it is unlikely that he would run.

So what do you think? Should Howard suit up and run again? And would you support him if he did?
