It’s as if he never left

Howard Dean—former Vermont governor, former Democratic presidential candidate and current object of Democrats’ affections—will be appearing yet again at Dartmouth.

In what organizers are touting as “the first time a presidential candidate has ever come to a sorority at Dartmouth,” the loser of all but one Democratic primary will appear at Epsilon Kappa Theta sorority on Friday evening to discuss “political engagement in the 21st century.” The official Dartmouth distinguished visiting fellow for the summer, Dean has made few appearances on campus; perhaps he has instead been campaigning in the rural South. As at the few other events he has attended as a guest of the College, he will likely use Friday’s visit to discuss the wild success of his flopped campaign.
