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.
