Radio Iowa: Harkin in the mix

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

For those of you who've been pondering the idea of this
row-of-dominoes -- President Barack Obama naming Iowa Senator Tom
Harkin to head the Department of Health and Human Services (the post
Obama originally asked Tom Daschle to take), then Governor Chet Culver
appoints himself to Harkin's seat in the U.S. Senate and then
Lietuenant Governor Patty Judge becomes the governor -- hold your
horses! Harkin has said some nice things about the idea of Howard
Dean as HHS secretary. Harkin, as you may recall, endorsed Dean's bid
for the White House in 2004 and wound up on stage, behind Dean,
holding Dean's coat on Caucus Night when Dean did "the scream."
