'The Dean Scream’: Remembering the Infamous Iowa Caucus Speech

Did the infamous scream really end Howard Dean's presidential ambitions in 2004?

The series' first short film, titled "The Dean Scream," seeks to answer if Dean's loud outburst actually derailed his run for the White House.

Following the impassioned address on Jan. 19, 2004, Dean's holler was widely rebroadcast and portrayed as a media gaffe that ended his presidential campaign.

The former presidential candidate later claimed the yelp was due to a crack in his voice because of all his "whooping and hollering" in Iowa.
