Carole Migden, San Francisco's state senator and an influential member of the DNC, said Saturday she is looking closely at Martin Frost for national party chair. "He, too, is a grownup, with a sterling, proven Democratic record," Migden said. "I was very favorably impressed with his record." ... Migden acknowledged the dominance of Howard Dean supporters in the 500 or so people at Saturday's DNC chair forum in Sacramento, but said it was difficult to tell if it was "pure or orchestrated." Significantly, though, no other candidate could orchestrate a similar show of force - at least in this part of the country. ...


  1. Carole Migden is looking closely at Martin Frost? Well - Martin Frost did his best to say he was a George W. Bush fan while campaigning to retain his Congressional seat. I'm sure Martin Frost would push all of the new blood Howard Dean brought to the Democratic Party in 2003 and 2004 right over the edge and back into the abyss of "I don't care, they're all the same" viewpoints on politics in America.

    Howard Dean is not going to lead the DNC. Just like with the Democratic primaries, Dean is going to get tag-teamed by the other candidates and party insiders. Don't get your hopes up.

    Yes, the Democratic Party insiders seem quite fond of murder/suicide missions. If they succeed in keeping Dean from becoming DNC chair, they will also be killing their best shot this decade at increasing their membership numbers.

  4. Jesus Christ, Carole!! Supporting Martin Frost??

    She hasn't exactly done too well for herself these days:

    "After the Governor’s budget announcement last week, San Francisco’s political leadership quickly denounced the plan. Mark Leno challenged the fairness and morality of the Governor’s budget and Mayor Newsom delivered harsh criticism of the plan’s spending priorities. Even moderate Leland Yee issued a blistering press release comparing the budget plan to the Governor’s action movies involving “destruction and devastation.” But nothing was heard from State Senator Carole Migden, who has been missing from state policy fights since succeeding John Burton last month."
