WHO'S HE TALKING ABOUT?

Huffington Post - Former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean fired one of the clearest warning shots at hesitant Democratic lawmakers, insisting that if the party was unable to produce a health care bill with a public plan, there would be electoral consequences. "I do think there will be primaries as the result of all this, if the bill doesn't pass with a public option," Dean said, in a phone interview with the Huffington Post.
The former Vermont governor added the caveat that he thought "cooler heads" would ultimately prevail and that a government run option for insurance coverage would be passed. But his remarks are some of the most threatening yet to be directed at Democrats from within the party.
