MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Will Howard Dean make another run for the presidency in 2016? He says "probably not, but we'll see."

Dean tells The Associated Press he isn't ruling out the possibility of seeking the Democratic nomination, which he tried for and didn't get in 2004.

When asked about a possible 2016 run, the former Vermont governor laughed and said he'd have to see a psychiatrist first.

He says a second run may be harder than a first, because the candidate knows what he or she is getting into.

Dean's 2004 campaign fizzled after an Iowa concession speech that many commentators described as ending with a scream.

But he's still regarded as a pioneer in using the Internet and grassroots fundraising as political tools.
