19. Yes, he'll be good. I wondered where Stacey for DNC came from,

because I never read about it from her and wondered that she'd want it. It's not meant to be an out-front position, more administrative support for the party. Our big policy decisionmakers are all elsewhere.

The official party head is always our top elected official in office. Pelosi, then Biden once he became our nominee, which is when his agenda became the party's. It would have been Pelosi again if he hadn't been elected.

The misunderstanding came from Bernie Sanders, who needed a target to turn his hostile populists against, so he pointed them at the DNC, but it had been badly neglected was almost devoid of power by then, and was never the ideological center that he implied it was.

Btw, the DNC's been restructured to be able to perform its role much better now, and Harrison will have a real job -- getting Democrats elected, but the DNC still doesn't set the agenda for anything but its own functions, important as they are.
