DNC Chair and Democratic Reform

For those of you who care deeply about the direction of the Democratic party, next month a key position will be filled -- DNC party chariman.

About 7 people are currently conadidates for the top spot and I strongly recommend that you check them all out.

As Josh Mashall put it:

"...if you do have a candidate, find out who the DNC members are in your state and let them know what you think, what you want.

...this is a big decision for Democrats, one that will help shape the party in a period when Democrats are both coming off intensely demoralizing defeats but also witnessing what I believe are exciting signs of new vibrancy and growth. This one's too important to be left to the vagaries of chits and glad-handing."

For me, I'm supporting Simon Rosenberg, president of the New Democratic Network. I think he brings all the strengths and reform that a Dean would bring, but none of the liablities.

And I think he brings a lot of fresh new ideas, and is one of the candidates who really undestands how the decentralizing power of the Inetenet can be tapped for being more than just a political ATM machine. Lastly he is pusing a values based message that is coherent and not "tacked on" to a Progressive poltical mssage.

But check everyone out, and don't miss this chance to influence the party.
