Steven Taylor has an interesting discussion as to the impact of Howard Dean’s previous career as a physician on his perceived arrogance. Interestingly, Dean’s spokesman on Fox News Sunday used a variation of that argument as a defense for some of Dean’s gaffes.

Update (1055): I looked at FNS’s online transcript of the Grossman interview and couldn’t find the quote. Either it’s incomplete or it was someone else who said it.
