Debbie Wasserman Schultz Selected as New DNC Chair


    Excellent pick for DNC Chair!

    President Barack Obama has settled on Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, top Democratic sources said Tuesday.

    Wasserman Schultz, 44, was chosen for her strength as a fund-raiser and as a television messenger, and for her clout in the crucial swing state of Florida, the sources said.

    I had a chance to meet Rep. Wasserman Schultz at an event in Arlington in March 2010 and was very impressed. Congratulations!

      We’ll see, but this may be a good appointment.  Let’s hope.

      Visually, I think this is a good move.  She’s highly energetic.  I assume that she keeps her day job.

      I met former DNC chair Dean when the DNC meeting was held at the Tysons Sheraton when the Dem. Pres. candidates were appearing and I was a volunteer to help with the official attendees. I don’t know if the DNC typically meets in NoVa if it’s not a presidential election year, but I’d be willing to travel to attend and possibly have a chance to meet the DNC chair, if it’s someplace within a long day’s driving distance.

      Of course, I can always take a chance that on being able to meet her in the DNC HQ office in D.C. I just don’t know how to go about getting in and getting a chance to meet her, so attending a DNC meeting might give me a better perspective about her skills.

      Heck…I will gladly support Tim Kaine for Senate just to get Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair.

      I’ve also met Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She’s a wonderful and exciting choice for DNC Chair!

      A Great choice!

    • I think she is really sharp, a fine legislator, and an effective communicator and will be an excellent chair.  The DNC should meet within about 30 days in Washington DC to elect the new chair.  When I get more details, I’ll be posting updates on
