The Tim Kaine DNC Resignation Watch Begins

First, this race is hardly over, and anything can happen over the next 12 days to change the outcome. But in a discussion this week with some friends who happen to be Democrats, the topic turned to Tim Kaine, specifically in his capacity as DNC Chairman.

Tim Kaine was appointed Chairman of the DNC in January of this year. We all agreed that this was a reward for Kaine for two reasons. First, for his part in delivering Virginia for President Obama, no small task. And, secondly, in anticipation of moving Virginia from a “purple” state to a “blue” state. Keep the Governor’s mansion and take the House. This would complete the fade to blue, give Democrats complete control of Virginia and, most importantly, redistricting.

In January, 2009, this looked like a sure thing. Ten months after taking control of the DNC, and retaining the job of Virginia Governor, Tim Kaine is looking over the edge of a steep cliff. According to my Democrat friends, the only question, should the polls be accurate, is if Kaine jumps or gets pushed.

To be sure, Creigh Deeds will be slammed with the first wave of blame. But there is no blood to be let there. The Senate is likely to be the only hold the Democrats manage this cycle, mainly due to the fact there are no elections on the Senate side this year. Deeds will not be asked to resign.

Tim Kaine will be the fall guy, no doubt.

The consensus seemed to be that if Republicans pick up more than 3 or 4 seats in the House, sweep the state ticket and capture New Jersey (a VERY close race), the Democratic mob that comes after Kaine will resemble a Frankenstein movie. Should Corzine win in New Jersey, the mob may be a bit muted, but Kaine is still gone.

None believed that Tim Kaine would be DNC Chairman for the Mid Term elections next year.

Interestingly, none of my friends were ready to lay even a small amount of blame on President Obama.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
