At last week's meeting of state Democratic Party chairs in Florida, some of the participants were talking up the possibility of drafting for Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), former Texas Democratic Party Chair Molly Beth Malcolm. What were they drinking in Florida? This is a terrible idea.
Molly Beth is a nice person. She did get the party out of debt. Did her chairwomanship produce Democratic victories in Texas? Absolutely not.
The DNC needs to be led by an individual that knows how to win and knows what it takes to win. Molly Beth does not fall into this category.
It would interesting to know what the petition circulators were thinking when they came up with the draft Molly Beth campaign idea.
