Kaine, Obama rally Democrats in snow-covered DC
While most of us were snowbound yesterday, President Obama and former governor Tim Kaine met in Washington to pep up down-and-out Democrats.
After a string of losses in Virginia, New Jersey and most recently Massachusetts, some Democrats have been calling for Kaine's removal as Democratic National Committee chairman, but Obama greeted his friend warmly at a DNC meeting yesterday.
"I want to thank Tim Kaine, who's not only an outstanding former governor, but an outstanding leader of this party -- busy building the best online and in-field grassroots organization we've ever had."
Kaine told the audience that Democrats should do a "better job telling the story" of how the president saved the nation from economic collapse, and that the party should not worry about losing the Massachusetts Senate seat.
"The ghost of Harry Truman would kill us if he heard us complaining about 59 seats in the United States Senate," Kaine said. "But we have to learn some lessons."
