MSNBC’s Countdown with… Howard Dean!

Former Governor of Vermont, former Chair of the DNC, and medical doctor Howard Dean will be guest-hosting MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann tonight (Tuesday) and tomorrow night (Wednesday). No word yet on whether the show will be renamed in Olbermann’s absence.
