Dean joins CNBC

Former Gov. Howard Dean has added another hat to his collection as he adjusts to life after being chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Dean, along with being a speechmaker, political consultant, health care reform advocate, Democratic think tanker and Democracy for America chief cheerleader, will now also be a regular "contributor" (code for talking head) on CNBC, the cable biz outlet for NBC.

Dean was on the air this morning at his CNBC gig, chatting up the Obama administration's new bank bailout plan. Here's a peek at how it went...

BTW, Huffington Post covered the news of Dean's newest parttime gig this a.m., noting that while Dean's no economist, he "worked on Wall Street after graduating college and has family ties to the financial sector."

True, but do ya really think that's why he got the CNBC gig.

I'm glad to hear this. Sam you probably can tell me, the firm that originally hired Gov recently, a lobbying firm?, tell me no please. I've been wondering about this. Dosen't sound like the Gov, being a lobbyist, pundit is a much better fit.
Oh great another conservative commentator as a talking head. Just what we liberals wanted to hear.
Better than what we have seen so far!
Congrats Howard!
