New Dem Chair, Endorsements

The Texas Democratic Party Chair has announced that he won't be running again when his term expires next June. Here's a novel idea. If the Smart Dame and Da Bell end up being our top nominees after the March '06 primaries, let's let them pick the next Chair. Since they will be leading the ticket, doesn't it make sense for them to have a say on who leads the Dem Party's apparatus? The leaders of the various Dem interest groups/caucuses need to tell the state chair wannabees to stop being wannabees and wait for the top nominees - once they become the top nominees - to make the choice.

Laura Salinas will be endorsed today by all of her former opponents. We will see what kind of impact that has on the campaign.
