Could Kaine Be "Miserable" at DNC?
If he hasn't already, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) may want to read former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe's book, "What A Party."
Last week, Kaine took over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. But in his book, which was published in 2007, McAuliffe writes chairmen such as Kaine face "a miserable job" because they serve under a president of the same party.
"You have no autonomy or power; your're just expected to do whatever the White House political operation tells you to do, and you're not really a spokesman for the party since obviously the President has that job covered, " wrote McAuliffe, a Democratic candidate for governor who has held a number of positions within the national party since the 1980s.
