O'Malley will not run for DNC chair

Just got an email but can't seem to paste it from my phone. He says he can't devote full time to it for the next 4 years.

1. Beat me to it.

Welcome back, Recursion.

I received the e.mail too.

Fellow Democrat -

On November 8, the Democratic party and our country suffered a major setback. Now more than ever, we need to listen to one another and work to repair what has been torn apart.

While I'm grateful to the supportive friends who have urged me to consider running for DNC Chair, I will not be seeking our Party's Chairmanship. The DNC needs a Chair who can do the job fully and with total impartiality. The national interest must come first.

In the days ahead, my family and I will continue to do everything in our power to fight for the Democratic Party, and for the more compassionate and inclusive country that we carry in our hearts.

"We are one, our cause is one, and we must help each other if we are to succeed."



-Martin



IMO this decision is a good thing. Why beat his head against a wall? (NO pun intended.)

2. I hope it is because he will be devoting himself to another run in 2020.

Not too early to start planning!

3. No, it's not too early to start planning, I agree,

but so much going on, and such drama, I'm not at all sure it's his time for the top seat. More thoughts later.

4. I hope he runs again. Hopefully the media doesn't pick two candidates

and leave the others out to dry.

5. Yes, it would be good to have someone devoting full time to it. (nt)
