NPR's Robert Siegel discusses the phenomenon of Howard Dean's concession speech in Iowa along with Bill Powers, media critic for The National Journal. Dean's speech was fiery, guttural, and wild, and at one moment he shrieked out a battle cry. The performance has made the rounds of late-night TV monologues, and has been sampled in music mixes circulating the Internet.
