Chairman Kaine

Virginia's homegrown eyebrow, Tim Kaine, will be the new DNC chairman.

Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine will become chairman of the Democratic National Committee later this month, serving as the top political messenger for Barack Obama's administration even while he finishes his final year in the governor's mansion, several sources said.

Since the chairman is usually an insider with the sitting president, this isn't too surprising as Kaine was a very early Obama booster and because of Virginia's weird system he can't run for a second consecutive term as Governor this year.
