“I am astonished that more people, and especially President Obama, are not considering or even thinking about Dr. Dean as a possible FDA Commissioner. That position oversees a full 25% of the US Economy that is food or drugs, and we have a dastardly and horrible procession of industry-serving apparatchiks and dim bulbs in that position for the past 30 years, starting with Donald Rumsfeld's personally selected appointee, Arthur Hull Hayes, picked because Reagan owed Donny a big favor, and because Dr. Hayes agreed in advance to approve asapartame/methanol/formaldehyde/diketopiperazine as America's next poison of choice-artificial sweetener, despite 15 years of FDA saying no to aspartame's approval and FDA's own Board of Inquiry wanting to indict Searle for Fraud in Aspartame application by Searle. The USA is riddled with such ghastly stories of eviscerated regulatory approval and bashed consumer protection legislation.s

Google and read this: RUMSFELD'S BIOWEAPON LEGACY.

I personally don't trust anyone other than Dr. Dean to straighten it out. Dr. Nissen the FDA critic on several medications eventually taken off the market, would be tolerable but Dean would be great.

Commented Feb 6, 2009 at 20:02:14 in Politics

“Paging Doctor Dean: Howard For Health Secretary?
Fri, 02/06/2009 - 12:01am by LibertySugar

Howard Dean has a long resume, but there's one credential that might make him the perfect second choice to lead the Department of Health and Human Services — he has an MD. Dr. Dean admitted before the inauguration that Barack Obama passed over him while filling up his administration; but now that Tom Daschle dropped out, Dean might get another look.

As Governor of Vermont, Dean oversaw the Dr. Dynasaur program, which achieved near universal health care for children. He also showed his managing abilities in Vermont, by balancing the budget 11 times and lowering income taxes twice. Then again, Dean's perceived polarizing character might be a distraction from health care reform.”

“"Richardson's penchant for lying and unsavory associations"? Absolute BS, mean spirited and specious

As a New Mexican, I am almost as irked, as I was offended by Palast's question elsewhere: "how can a Mexican have a name like Bill Richardson?" This is trashy 'guilt by association' on his part to impugn that Richardson's hand was in the cookie jar. To think that is to deny or ignore the fact that Richardson is too smart and too ambitious to do anything so stupid.

This is the nation's loss, truly it is. Maybe he is keeping his 'powder dry,' so to speak, in case Hillary botches the SoS job.

He will be cleared in this grand jury investigation, make no mistake....remember the missing discs from LOS ALAMOS that cost him the VP slot about 5 years ago, and how they turned up mysteriously behind the Xerox machine a few days after the gravitas passed? I think this is the same kind of deal, a raw deal, for a good Governor who will be great in some position down the line.

I do think the premises in your article are way off base, speaking as a New Mexican who has known Richardson for 31 years. oh, well; there will always be comments from the peanut gallery.”

Richardson the Odd Democrat Out

Commented Jan 4, 2009 at 22:17:54 in Politics

“Richardson's withdrawal is a very complext subject, with lots of layers of perception and facts. This article is just a tiny bit meanspirited and rather shallow in analyzing his Presidential campaign; his motivation for withdrawing I believe to be exactly and precisely what he said it was:.Richardson doesn't want to impede the progress of Obama with delays because of this ill considered grand jury investigation. I think he might also be wanting to "keep his powder dry." I am very saddened by this latest development, and believe in due course he will be exonerated fully. He is my governor, and is squeaky clean.

“Great news for the Nation! At a press conference this morning with NM's Gov. and Lt.

“As a friend of Richardson's for 31 years, and as a New Mexican who likes this Governor and everything he has accomplished as our Chief Executive, I can say clearly that 2 million New Mexicans will miss him as governor, especially me, as I often spoke with him at his Press Conferences. He would still make a fine Secretary of State, in due course; keep the faith: Richardson will still be around, and with yet another Cabinet post under his belt, be ready for higher office. His international acumen and experience will vitalize a position that is frequently Dead on Arrival. Hillary's Hawkish tendencies alarm me, but she will be more in line with Obama's conciliatory vantagepoint than she was as First Lady and as Senator. Andrew Cuomo seems like the best and most logical replacement for her, in my humble opinion...

New Mexico has done well in this recent election, now that for the first time in 40 years our Congressional Delegation is all Democratic, and this is in large part to the efforts of both Obama and Richardson! There are seven New Mexico state senators, Democrats, who are new to the chamber, including some major replacements of Republican obstructionists. Already a progressive Senate, it is even more so now, by a quantum leap.

Best wishes for William Blaine Richardson III in his new position as Commerce Secretary. MIracles will be expected of Obama's Cabinet, and Richardson will be able to deliver great results, I am sure.”

The talent coming into the House is outstanding particularly in your new Congress person from District 3, Ben Ray Lujan who was the former chair of your utilities commission (PRC). He is a person we need working on energy policy for this country. He is committed to renewables and has a depth of knowledge that few come into the Congress with. It is enormously impressive.”

“SORRY FOLKS, BUT THIS IS IDLE AND ILL FOUNDED CONJECTURE. You need to realize that Bill Richardson not only loves being Governor of New Mexico but he also loves New Mexico to take such a job. He likes his resume, of course, and treasured any Cabinet post offered him back in the 90's, but he would never leave for Commerce, I assure you, as a friend and observer of Richardson for 30 years.

Personally, I find Hillary to be too much of a hawk (to be my kind of Secretary of State, anyway), and besides I wanted a clean break with the past. I think Richardson should have the SoS job, and have for about 10 months now.

I really hope Obama will put those 65 Nobel Laureates to work on the Economy, as we need urgently a new BRAIN TRUST of the highest order to reason out solutions for the Economic Collapse that seems inevitable at this point.

And yes, Obama: please don't keep Robert Gates around. That would be disastrous.”

If this turns out to be so, the repercussions would seem minor, if Dr. Dean is knocked out of the picture.
Rahm or no Rahm: Dr. Dean would be the best thing that could happen to the Department of Health and Human Services, especially if Dean would take on an overhaul of the FDA. We are in serious international trouble because of the rampant corporate manipulation of the FDA, and frankly, I don't trust anyone else but Dean to straighten it out.”

“You want more assuaging, yes-men, and corporate/Congress schmoozing, especially when it comes to America's health and the abuse it has suffered for 8 to 16 years at the hands of American corporations, or more like 60 years? I DON'T. 60 years is more accurate, because that is when the US Quartermaster convinced the CEO's of the top food companies in America, at the Stevens Hotel in Chicago in 1948, to start dumping that taste enhancer from Japan into their products, called Monosodium Glutamate, which stuck even after it was revealed that it was a neurotoxin. These companies were General Foods, Campbell Soups, Hershey's, General Mills, Borden Milk, and other trusted names in American consumer memory.

Look, Obama's in charge here. He will make good decisions in terms of the Cabinet; we will all be happy, but no harm in making one's strongest views known widely, eh? I have such fierce and idealistic views on Consumer Protection, what I want to see happen in terms of American Health may be impossible, but I surely don't want to sacrifice all to some writer's views of an "abrasive" medical and political genius like Dr. Dean not being "able" to convince Congress to pass Obama's health plan? That is BS. That is specious and absurd; I am willing to bet the core of her article didn't even come from the Obama top brass! This original POLITICO.COM article is more of a hatchet job.

“Don't get me wrong. I like abrasive, because it is always the adjective stupid people use to describe the frenetic and sometimes caustic abilities of those who are much smarter and more effective, etc. I respect Obama's decisions. He picked Rahm. Abrasive? Wonderful, I say.

What I am objecting to is this writer's presumption that Dr. Dean couldn't deal with Congress. That is just plain stupid. She worked for the Wall Street Journal. Sometimes such writers are ghost writing for corporate titans up and down Wall Street, or at least inculcating their point of view sometimes subconsciously, who don't like Dean for whatever reason, and want to dismiss him as "abrasive," as if that mean a damned thing in Washington, or Big Pharma and Big Junk Food guys and investors who are terrified they might lose a few bucks if a true Consumer Protectionist comes into power at the FDA or as HHS Secretary, you know: "looking out for the bottom line...."

“I find this article to be somewhat specious. Not even qualifying or identifying the sources makes it more of a "run it up the flag pole and see who doesn't salute" kind of story. I believe Dr. Dean is still very much in the running for HHS. The fact is that American's health needs someone of his caliber as HHS Secretary, and face it: THERE ISN'T ANYONE ELSE OF HIS CALIBER AROUND.

Abrasive with congress? So what? That is what I would want in a Cabinet member, especially one dealing with the most corporate-abused regulatory apparatus in the USA: the FDA. I don't want to see a Congressional Schmooze at FDA. Even Dr. Von Eschenbach, who perpetuated the Corporate Manipulation of the FDA, was no Congressional Schmooze. Either POLITICO has some very trivial sources, or you are trying to spin some political realities of your own, which as a Journalist myself, I understand but don't respect at all.

Politico ought to write a new article that is 90% fact and 10% speculation, instead of the other way around. When their is vast concern and interest over Cabinet choices among the arm chair pundits and Wednesday morning quarterbacks, that doesn't justify abandoning all pretext at accuracy in the journalistic quarters. If these are credible sources, without giving away their identities, they could qualify or explain their level of credibility and their credentials, eh?”

Your caring and compassion is terribly moving. Where would this child end up in a McCain Presidency? In yet another war with Iran or Indonesia or which ever nation he was angry about that morning?

Keep up the great writing and I look forward to reading more as well as learning more about Obama Arts, which interests me as an art dealer in Santa Fe for the past 28 years.

I have been concentrating on using my volunteer Obama time to fire up citizens' letters to the editor and Opinion Editorials for Obama; this tactic, entirely my own doing, is starting to bear some major fruit, so we will devote the next issue of the New Mexico Sun News to a capitulation of nationwide editorial endorsements of Obama.

It was fascinating: the most commenting groups during the debate were Oregonians, SanFranciscoforObama, and a yahoo group, Secular Humanist, easily the most interesting group on the web, in my humble opinion. I posted this at mybarackobama.com on my weblog page as well as in today's OpEdNews.

Uganda's largest newspaper is owned by the Ugandan Gov't, I believe: there is nothing resembling a free press as we know it, in many African nations. When one free newspaper starts, the editors and publishers are frequently arrested or murdered. When Georgianne writes about such things, she absolutely knows what she is talking about.
