After Iowa, Howard Dean will head to New Hampshire

(CNN) – Make that two stops for Howard Dean on the roster of visits to early voting states – though this one is a little closer to home.

The former Vermont governor, who speaks in Iowa Wednesday, will head to his neighbor state New Hampshire in September for a speech on health care.

He’ll speak at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics as part of an ongoing speaker series.

A description of the event on the college’s website says Dean – who made an unsuccessful bid for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination – will discuss “what he believes are a number of unintended consequences in the Affordable Care Act that will move the US down the track of having a wellness system instead of an illness based system.”

Dean told CNN’s Peter Hamby earlier this year he would think about running again for the Democratic nomination if other candidates weren’t adequately addressing progressive issues.

His stop in Iowa Wednesday will be at the state’s Federation of Labor convention, where he’ll talk about his independent group’s project that aims to help elect Democrats to state House and Senate seats.

    I love it!!! The Democrat party have plenty well qualified candidates to nominate for president unlike the crazy republician party who's fighting within its own party...

    Hey, if Santorum can go, Dean can go. At least Dean is sane.

    If Hillary Clinton doesn't run, he is going to position himself to challenge Biden. If Hillary does run, he wants in the administration.
