Howard Dean: Baby Boomers Need to "Get Out of the Way" of New Democratic Party

The baby boom generation needs to "get out of the way" and yield to young leadership, according to former Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean.

In an interview Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Dean, the DNC head from 2005 to 2009 and former governor of Vermont, argued it's time the next generation take the lead on the political stage.

"Our party and the country as a whole — the baby boomers have to get out of the way," he said. "That's my generation. I'm happy to advise. I don't think that we need to be in the forefront anymore."

Dean said he admired House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — and correctly predicted she'd be re-elected to the post — calling her "the most effective Speaker since [the late] Tip O'Neill."

But, he said, "we need somebody from the next generation to be in charge of everything — not just on the Democratic side but Republican side — to empower this very generation that we're talking about."
