Dean Praises White House Shake Up

Howard Dean "took broad swipes at what he called the 'contempt' of some senior, departing White House advisers while, curiously, praising the possibility of former Commerce Secretary Bill Daley taking over as chief of staff," the Huffington Post reports.

Said Dean: "The core issue is the contempt, which not just the progressives were treated by but lots of people were treated by, by senior advisers around the president who have been here for 20 years and thought they knew everything and we knew nothing. That is a fundamental flaw in any kind of administration. As they say, 'Don't let the door hit you in the you-know-what on the way out.'"

Dean was denied a job in the Obama administration by former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.
