Van Hollen To Dccc

Maryland Democrat Chris Van Hollen is succeeding Rahm Emanuel at the top of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. I don't have much analysis except to say it's a distinct change in style. Rahm is an F-bomber who suffers fools roughly the way Saddam suffered critics. Van Hollen seems an extremely nice and mild-mannered guy. He was also the main character in one of the pieces I've most enjoyed writing for TNR. (If you read it you'll know he's determined to prevent a Democratic return to the House minority.)
