Wasserman Watch

As time goes on, I'm becoming more enamored with the idea of putting Debbie Wasserman Schultz high up in the Obama campaign. Since I last addressed the topic, I've been pleased that Obama has made her the point person for addressing the sexism of Primary 2008:

In response, the Obama campaign directed a reporter to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida, who supported Mrs. Clinton but who is now speaking for the Obama campaign. She said Mr. Obama had no specific plans for a speech on sexism, partly because he already incorporates themes of discrimination as a societal problem into his speeches.

She's also friendly and cognizant of LBGT rights. And check this out:

Asked by MSNBC host Dan Abrams if the committee would go far as having Rove arrested [for refusal to testify before the Judicial Committee], Wasserman said it would.

"Well, if that's what it takes."
