President Barack Obama is backing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to stay on as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, according to a senior Democratic official.
The Florida lawmaker had been expected to stay on in her role atop the DNC. She attended more than 850 campaign events in 31 states in her 18-month tenure for the 2012 cycle.
The DNC will meet Jan. 22 to elect its leadership. In practice, any decision by the president is final; it would be unprecedented for the DNC membership to go against a Democrat president’s choice.
He’s creating distractions. He knows that Rice will take up days and weeks of media coverage..he knows that DWS is a polarizing figure so she will provide cover stopping more important things from being scrutinized.
Same dumb trick, over and over and over.

Of course he does. The fool never met an idiot he didn’t want in charge of something.

The fact that they keep on overlooking the real intellect in the party – Sheila Jackson Lee – is just more proof of how dim the Democrats are.
