party historians: has there ever been such an ongoing, public discussion
about choosing the DNC chair????......with meetings around the country??....and input from the grassroots??

isn't it usually that the nominal head of the party picks the DNC chair????.....didn't Clinton/Gore pick McCauliffe?????

1. I can never remember this much controversy....
Does that mean our Party is very divided?

2. Perhaps it means people are interested..... We are not going to let
the insiders run the party without our input.
Thanks to Howard Dean we have gotten used to having our voices heard.

4. Yeah, but who's the nominal head of the Party right now?
Should Kerry pick? Or the Clintons? We sure as Hell don't want McAuliffe picking.

5. Agree Wolf
I think it means it's unclear who the head of the party is. Usually these things are handled behind the scenes with a few guys picking someone.
