Howard Dean Cares About One Thing

I’ll let you guess what that is:

Howard Dean, 2008:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Monday that he’s looking forward to one party controlling all aspects of government, despite GOP charges that it would be a disastrous Nov. 4 outcome.  “Republicans had a chance to rule. They failed miserably. I think it’s time to give the other party a chance,” Dean said on MSNBC.

Howard Dean, 2005:

We need more than one party in charge. And the vote on Tuesday is going to be critical to decide whether American democracy still allows those of us who didn’t vote for the president to have any say in running the country whatsoever.
[…]
Someday, the Democrats will be back in charge again. Do we want a Democratic Party that’s in charge of everything? Well, you know, I suppose it’s my job to say yes. But the truth is, as an American, it’s better when parties share power. It’s better when even those people who didn’t win the election have something to say.
[…]
[There] is a culture of corruption and abuse of power in Washington. This is what happens when one party is in charge of everything.

Exit question: Republicans had a chance to rule? When did America start being ruled?
