Our hosts have done a great job. Let's thank them by giving them some relief. [View all]

They have served honorably for several months now and have all done a great job, so let's give them a break and elect a new crop of hosts. Otherwise, we run the risk of having them become like career politicians, where maintaining the office is more important than doing the job they were elected to do. I suggest that we have term limits as well, and some fresh blood in the seats just may do this group some good.

Changing the hosts will also allow other DU members a look at the inner workings of DU, something we should ALL be privy to one time or another.

No one that regularly posts here should be excluded from consideration, and I think we should keep the lead host as a non-partisan, non-group regular participant. (I would be ok with keeping Renew Deal as lead host).

Your thoughts?
