(Newser) – Howard Dean wants his old job back. In the wake of Hillary Clinton's defeat, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee said he wants to run the DNC again, reports Politico. "The dems need organization and focus on the young," tweeted the former Vermont governor. "Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again." When he served as chairman from 2005 to 2009, the Democrats saw big gains in Congress along with the election of President Obama, notes the Hill. Donna Brazile is currently interim DNC chief, having replaced Debbie Wasserman Schultz before the party convention. (Democrats also have coming under fire for losing touch with white working-class workers.)
