John Dickerson revisits the Dean Scream of 2004.

slate.com — After a meteoric rise to the top of the polls, Howard Dean's presidential campaign famously flamed out in January 2004. It's often attributed to Dean's overexuberant speech to supporters following his disappointing finish in that year's Iowa caucuses. But in this episode of Whistlestop, John Dickerson explains why the seeds of Dean's demise were present almost from the campaign's beginning.

Chris Hughes is selling the New Republic. What does that means for journalism, according to the Political Gabfest?

slate.com — This week on the Political Gabfest Slate Plus bonus segment, hosts Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz discuss Chris Hughes' decision to sell the New Republic.

Perspective: How big can the Republican tent be?

tampabay.com — COLUMBIA, S.C. - I have never covered so much distance in such a short time, traveling from one corner of the Republican big tent to the other. I recently attended a Donald Trump rally in Rock Hill, S.C. More than 6,000 people filled a basketball arena at Winthrop University, right up to those last seats obscured by championship banners.

The Republican Party may not be big enough for Donald Trump and Paul Ryan.
