Remember that weekend in September when the Hillary Clinton camp decided to pull out all the stops in its attempt to win over those fickle millennials? The campaign dispatched Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — combined age, 142 — to the battleground state of Ohio and even began talks to lure Al Gore, 68, out of hiding to re-traumatize all those kids who were forced to watch “An Inconvenient Truth” in school.
Now, with Donald Trump preparing to take the oath of office in January and Donna Brazile trying to hold the DNC together, the party needs a chair who will focus on the young and knows something about rehab. Could it be … Anthony Weiner?
No, not him. Here’s a clue:

The dems need organization and focus on the young. Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again.
— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) November 10, 2016
This guy? By all means.
You're not focused or young. https://t.co/1B1q2tGBMJ

Would be good news if Howard Dean took over the DNC.
They won't win an election for 30 years.

@rumpfshaker Do the Dems have anyone under 50 that they can trust with this stuff? Is their bench this depleted?

@rumpfshaker Speaking of old people, whatever happened to Al Gore's millennial outreach program Clinton asked him to do?
— Brandon (@BMS355) November 10, 2016
Well, Gore did show for one rally, at which the same Democrats who feared Donald Trump wouldn’t accept his electoral defeat quietly and with class broke into a chant of, “You won!”
If you guys pick Howard Dean as the head of the DNC, then you didn't learn a god damn thing.

So, it’s a done deal?
