Dean preps for talkshow 04/29/2004

While everything’s still in the early talking stages, the former Democratic presidential candidate is mulling the idea of hosting his own syndicated gabfest. He’s hooked up with ex-Big Ticket TV topper Larry Lyttle (“Judge Judy”) and longtime political consultant Gerald Rafshoon, who would likely serve as exec producers of a pilot for any such project.

Somehow I’m not seeing it. Dean doesn’y exactly have a TV personality.

Further, he doesn’t appear to want to be the next Chris Matthews, but rather the next Oprah:

Dean seems interested in going in a completely different direction.

“The last thing we’re going to talk about is politics,” Lyttle said. “We’d talk about a myriad of other things instead of politics.”

Dean’s skein would likely have more in common with the talkshow Bill Clinton had been considering a few years back.

“He’d look at things like, What happens if you lose a sibling? What about when you’re victimized by not having health care?” Lyttle said, arguing that Dean has the perfect persona for the small screen.

    HOWARD DEAN: “Not only are we going to New Hampshire, we’re going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico, and we’re going to California and Texas and New York. And we’re going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan. And then we’re going to Washington, D.C., to get back your husband. Yeeeeaaaaaaahhhh.”

    The real life traffic jam starts early in the Beltway on Fridays; the roads are packed by 2:30 or so. Oddly, the digital traffic seems…
