I caught one question on energy policy with Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean yesterday at a barbecue. Dean touted Democratic plans to support renewable energy, and cheered the inclusion of corporations like WalMart in the renewables sector.

“The new American economy is IT, it’s finance, and it’s renewable energy,” said Dean.

He first responds to a question about whether the Democratic Party can win in Arizona this year, and proceeds to the energy question at 2:03.
