PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Howard Dean — the former Vermont governor and presidential candidate — is revisiting what’s become known as “Dean Scream.”

Dean says with gusto at the Democratic National Convention that the 2106 presidential race will be won in “Colorado and Iowa and North Carolina and Michigan and Florida and Ohio and Pennsylvania.” He means it’s a national campaign.

The crowd roared as he said they would take it “all the way to Washington, D.C.”

Think back 12 years — when Dean delivered a fiery speech on the night of his third-place finish in the 2004 Iowa caucuses. At the time, Dean pledged to campaign across the nation.

He wrapped up his speech with a defiant shriek. A video of the address got unending play on cable television and provided fodder for comedians to lampoon.
