Connolly's Ambitions Influence Board's Tone?

According to sources quoted in this article from yesterday's Metro section, Fairfax County Board of Supervisor's Chairman Gerald E. Connolly (D) is working to ensure that nothing the county government does rocks the boat so hard as to upset his possible plans to run for higher political office.

What do Focus on Fairfax readers think? Is the Chairman's influence on the board a positive one? Do you think his ambitions are having any impact on how the Board of Supervisors is governing?
