(CNN) - Virginia Gov. Time Kaine has been tapped to serve as chairman of the Democratic National Committee to replace Howard Dean, two Democratic officials told CNN Sunday.
Kaine will serve on a part-time basis until his term as governor expires, the officials said.
–CNN Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry contributed to this report.
Dean did a very good job and if he can get past that yell he made during his run for pres., he would make a good pres. himself, but that was embarrasing
I wanted him for VP, but this is even better!
mr. kaine i hope you have been vetted.
Great guy the next president after Obama's 8 years.
Guess McAuliffe wants to do a switch-er-roo.
This is probaby a pretty good choice. Gov. Kaine doesn't pull punches. He's partisan, but no unreasonably so (i.e. you can talk to him!).
Great choice, good man I liv in Virginia
Great choice, good man I live in Virginia.
Excellent choice to show some of those to the extreme right a more genuine form of Christianity. Dem forever.
I would choke up too at the thought of working with inept, arrogant old cronies like Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Dodd...! 🙁
But then PEBO used Chicago smack down, palm-greasing, manipulation, obfuscation, prevarication...to get elected so-on with the one act drama!
I like it. Now the Dems have a leader that looks just like the psycho lead singer of the punk band Prodigy! "I AM THE FIRE STARTER...!"
good. That's one down ( Dean) one to go ( Pelosi) they both should be fired for their anti Hillary agenda this primary.
God Bless Obama in 09
goodbye Howard Dean
Good man that Gov. Kaine! I think he will serve well.
Nice nice nice of kane!
I will Gove Kaine will do an excellent job!! Good luck to him
Who is Time Kane?
People in Virginia can't wait to get rid of Kaine. This appointment shows that Kaine has and will continue to place partisan politics ahead of governing.
The people of this great Commonwealth are ready to elect Attorney General Bob McDonnell as the next Governor of Virginia! This is going to be Kaine's major upset as DNC chairman.
BOB MCDONNELL FOR GOVERNOR!
Great for the blue state of Virginia,now lets run the rest of the rebels into the sea.
Way to go Mr. Dean.....YYEEHAW
I never thought Howard Dean should have taken over the reins of the DNC. I think when he lost his bid for the President his credibility was diminished also. The Democratic Party has a real chance to do some real good and has the chance to be THEE party with Obama in. I think we need to have the very best minds in command of the party to advance it even further.
Obama might have a "soft side" but he's still a Dumbocrat. His "softness" can't and never will hold candles to George Bush. George Bush is a deep man and has VERY deep feelings. You DO NOT get a lip quiver, fighting emotions as President, from forcing it.
We'll just see what Obama does OR doesn't do. The first 100 days, as they say, will say alot.
Step away from the delusion pipe.
People in Virginia are looking for a change in the way business is done in VA. And Bob McDonnell is not it.
Go back to licking your wounds.
Great news!!! I hope it is true. Howard Dean did a great job. YeeHaw, Howard!!!!
Aware @ 8:43, you have the wrong blog. LOL You Repub blogs kill me LOL
Does this mean i should go back to being a Democrat...
Tim Kane is a honorable, Christian, caring, hard working, visioned oriented man. May God Bless Your steps Tim as you go forward and may you always seek his will and not your own.
