The Invisible Horse
Tim who? "In a statement, Roemer said several prominent Democrats have asked him to consider leading the party."-from the P-I story tonight. From CNN, there is another story, "Reid, Pelosi backing Roemer for DNC chair." Like my grandfather said, "It's not what you know, it's who you know." Why do you suppose these "prominent Democrats" would ask someone most party members know little or nothing about and have probably never heard of, to lead the party? What personal qualities of leadership do you imagine he might posses? Talk about a dark horse, this guy is an invisible horse. Update: Kos sheds a little light on the man and his friends. "The days of trying to move the Democratic Party to the right are over. We lost a very close election (a one-state difference) by running the #1 liberal in the Senate. Not bad. The country is shifting in our direction, not to the right. But the country was attacked and people were scared. They were manipulated with fear. And America has never thrown a sitting president out during wartime. That’s the facts. Oh, and our candidate could have run a better campaign (but we’ll have that discussion another day)."-from MichaelMoore.com. Update: Another pony is prepping for the race: "Texas ex-chair mulls bid for Dem leader."
