Let Howard Dean Go On Chris Wallace's Show Every Day

There aren't many Democrats who are quick enough and willing to be fully prepped to do well in 'interviews' with Fox. Howard Dean has proved himself in the past, and he's done it again.

Here's the evidence:

Clip One

Clip Two

Chris Wallace wants Dean to admit that he's misrepresenting what McCain said. Not only did he not agree, but he backed it up with facts to show that was bull and he did so in quick fashion so that he'd have the rest of his time to pound McCain using his best material that might sway some viewers.

This is a game that Dean knows how to play: regardless of the question you're given, you deal with it in the first 5 seconds, and then get on to what you really want to talk about. Dean was relentless. I may be missing some of the interview from those clips, but I doubt he was not up to the task of parrying Wallace's garbage.

I'm trying to think who else would be up to the task of going up against Fox. As far as Democratic electeds/party figures, none come to mind. Of talking heads, I'd go with Cliff Schecter or Rachel Maddow.
