Debbie Wasserman Schultz has handed the day-to-day operations of the Democratic Party over to Clinton’s hand picked operator Brandon Davis.
Davis assumes the role of Chief of Staff, but in reality, he will be running the Democratic National Committee until a new Chairperson is selected at this year’s convention. He is currently the national political coordinator for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
Wasserman-Schultz will retain her title in name only until the Democratic party votes on a successor.
The Bronx cheer you’re hearing as you read this article is coming from Vermont, where Bernie Sanders fans are cheering the departure of the southern Florida congresswoman known as DWS.
Personally I really have no opinion about Wasserman Schultz one way or the other, but to me this feels like Clinton buckling under to demands from Bernie Sanders.
If this has been what Clinton was going to do all along, then fine. But if she is doing it to get Sanders to endorse or support her I wonder if she is not demonstrating weakness rather than strength to a guy who is clearly still wrestling for some kind of influence over the Democratic party.
Oh, I'm sorry. Actually he is still fighting for the nomination.

Asked to answer "yes or no" whether Sanders is still running for president, Weaver was unequivocal.
“Yes, he is. Yes, he is. Yes, he is," Weaver said. "He is an active candidate for president, yes.
Well, so much for accepting the will of the voters.
As I have said in the past Clinton should not negotiate with this guy, he is now essentially a political terrorist who it appears is not so much trying to change the DNC for the better, but rather destroy it from within.
Remember to Bernie Sanders Fidel Castro is a hero, and the Democrats and Republicans are essentially the same.
