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.
From Think Progress:
Former Gov. Howard Dean will guest host MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann this Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Dean is a CNBC contributor. He, along with ThinkProgress’ Igor Volsky and Faiz Shakir, is the co-author a new book entitled, “Howard Dean’s Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform.” This morning, Dean sparred with CNBC’s business anchor Maria Bartiromo, who tried to defend the job that private sector has done on health care. Dean stood his ground, arguing, “The insurance companies do a terrible job.”
And here’s the video of Dr. Dean giving Maria Bartiromo what-for yesterday morning on Morning Joe (h/t Think Progress):
