Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz named new ChairWOMAN of the DNC

A woman at the top! It was announced earlier today that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) will become the new Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. She will be replacing the current chairman Tim Kaine, who is stepping down to run for Senate in Virginia.

I must say I am totally psyched for this! Rep. Wasserman Schultz is finally getting a chance to show the entire country what she is made of. Now, we just need her gal pal, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to get better so she can run for Senate in Arizona! Total Girl Power!

From the LA Times:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida will succeed Tim Kaine as chair of the Democratic National Committee, placing a rising female lawmaker from a key swing state into one of the most prominent surrogate roles for the Obama reelection campaign. Currently a party vice chair, Wasserman Schultz, 44, was the first Jewish woman elected to Congress from Florida, and she is serving her fourth term representing the state's 20th Congressional District. She will continue to serve in the House.Vice President Joe Biden announced the selection in an email to Democratic supporters Tuesday evening, praising "her tenacity, her strength, her fighting spirit, and her ability to overcome adversity." "President Obama expressed great admiration for her as a leader, and he was honored that she accepted this important challenge on behalf of the Democratic Party," Biden wrote. "No one should have any doubt that Debbie will work hard to strengthen our party and our country."
