Va. Governor to become next DNC Chairman

According to this Washington Post article, Va. Governor Tim Kaine will become the next Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman. He’ll work part-time until 2010, when Va. gubernatorial elections take place, and then he’ll assume the role full-time.

In that role, Kaine will be responsible for defending President-Elect Barack Obama against the Republicans. Certainly, then, he’ll be an important figure to follow. Partly responsible for the historic successes Obama had in Virginia, a state that hadn’t gone Democrat since 1964, let’s see if Kaine will also be an effective Obama cheerleader in the years to come.

  1. Mr. Kaine was a better candidate for Vice President. Without the taint of a lifetime as a Washington insider, I believe he had less baggage and a true fresh perspective for a ‘new’ Washington. Mr. Obama won the election so anyone could argue that his decision of naming Mr. Biden was the right one. Perhaps it is; perhaps we will never know how much more Washington could change. I am not sure what the impact of Mr. Kaine will be as a DNC Chairman. Perhaps he will have the ugly job of prevent Mrs. Clinton for revitalizing her own supporters within the party. Perhaps he will be the arbitrator if Mr. Obama decides to fire Mrs. Clinton after she decides to stop playing ball as a Secretary of State. If any of this proves to be true, we will name Mr. Obama as the new Machiavelli.
