Go Howard Dean

Rachel Maddow: You and I have talked in the past about the strategy for the final vote, and who’s going to be put on the spot. If it’s a very progressive bill, then conservative Democrats will be facing the choice of whether or not to vote ‘no’ on health reform in order to seem conservative. If it’s a conservative bill, then liberal Democrats will have to decide whether or not they’re going to vote ‘no’ on health reform in order to seem liberal. Which do you think is a better strategic bet for [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid?
Howard Dean: You know, I think we should just stop talking about liberal and conservative. What this is about is whether the American people get to make choices or whether politicians and bureaucrats and insurance companies are going to make the choices.
