NBC News has confirmed that President-elect Obama has tapped Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine to head up the Democratic National Committee.
Note that it was always expected that current chairman Howard Dean's term would end after the 2008 presidential election. Obama, as the incoming president, gets to select the DNC chairman.
How cool is that... I think Tim Kaine is a great guy... I was really hoping for a place in the cabinet for him. But I think he wanted to finish out his term as Governor of Virginia. He is young and has a great future a head of him. Watch this guy...he may just be a president in the making.
