Washington (CNN) – Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida will be named chair of the Democratic National Committee to succeed Tim Kaine, who is running for the U.S. Senate, according to an e-mail sent Tuesday to Democratic supporters.
Two women have previously chaired the DNC - Jean Westwood in 1972 and Debra DeLee in 1994-95.
This is absolutely the best news of the day. You go, girl!
Good for her. She seems like a very nice person, thoughtful and smart. Just from watching her talk about her friend
Gabby Giffords, she has a good heart too.
THANK GOD, someone with a brain !
It is about time the Democrats put forth some real credible people to take on the extremists of the Tea Party and the GOP..
It is going to take many more people of her caliber to win against the corporate moguls / GOP attempting to buy the 2012 election.
Outstanding choice!! I've listened to her speak many, many times and I only wish we had someone like her in SC. The Dem. party is very fortunate to have her as their spokesperson. She will do a great job for them.
Excellent choice ... this lady is the real deal!! Good luck Tim!!!
She's tough, she's smart, she's a winner. . . and she can bring the issue of women's choice and immigration up front and personal. Go Debbie!r
She seems like an extremely competent woman.
Wonderful. Let's see. The Democrats have Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi. Cleaver, articulate, stand up women. The Republicans have: Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, the crazy governor of Arizona, the already forgot her name would-be senator from Nevada. Brainless, bumblers, . . . . No contest!
This is truly a welcoming addition to the DNC!! This lady does NOT back down and is very intelligent!!! This is GREAT!!!!
Congrats Debbie – show 'em how it's run!!!
Maybe Obama won't have to make 12 million new American citizens before November 2012 after all.
Looks like he just sewed up the Jewish vote (and financing).
Couldn't have picked a more liberal, partisan politician.
Debbie will do a great job, Good luck Debbie give em hell.
How you would you like a promotion? I know it's the titanic and all but think of the glory!
This clinches the deal....I will be volunteering for the Democrats for re-election in 2012. I admire Ms. Schultz....the difference between her and the kooks on the other side like Bachman and Palin is HUGE. Ms. Schultz represents most women with her intelligence, empathy and open mindedness.
She's about as liberal as they come. She will be equally as annoying and productive as Howard Dean was. Only thing worse than her is if they bring greyson back. He was such a great spokesman for the democratic party. Dems are preparing for implosion
I bet she does a better job than Kaine of course anyone could do that. I just hope people in Va. realize what a bad senator Kaine would be for our state. He nearly destroyed this state with taxes while he was gov.
Is this some April Fools joke?
I can just imagine if it were true, LOL.
If Joe Biden decides not to run for the next term, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz would make a great Vice President. She's smart and tough enough to hold back the repugs.
Smart lady. Good pick!
