Episode Summary

Howard Dean and the DNC
Tucker interviews Harold Ickes on Howard Dean assuming the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee this Saturday. Ickes was a former deputy chair of the DNC, a Clinton White House advisor, and currently heads Hillary Clinton's political action committee. Ickes considered seeking the DNC chairmanship, but is supporting Dean.

Joining Tucker on our "Plus 2" segment is Jonah Goldberg of National Review and Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist for a conversation covering the president's budget and the soaring prescription drug benefit costs, the "scandal" in the White House press corps and the future political fortunes of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

And on our "Back Page" segment, Tucker interviews Dr. Thomas Barnett, author of The Pentagon's New Map. Barnett says that some of American foreign policy's most basic and enduring tenets are just plain wrong. Barnett argues that the U.S. should just let Iran have nuclear weapons, let China have Taiwan, attack North Korea, and spend much less time worrying about the Israelis and Palestinians, an old conflict that's diverting attention from the real international center of gravity: China.moreless
