I won’t presume for one second, an instant, an eye-blink that U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison read my earlier blog post about his quest to become the next head of the Democratic National Committee.
I was critical of a sitting member of Congress seeking to lead a national party, thus jeopardizing his ability to do the job to which he was elected.
So, what does Ellison do? He pledges to quit his House seat if the party selects him as its next chairman.
He wants to be a full-time Democratic Party chairman, which is a good thing if you’re a Democratic partisan. The party is in trouble, having lost the White House to Donald J. Trump and failing to gain control of the Senate.
It turns out that many Democrats had the same concern. They didn’t want Ellison to split time between serving his Minnesota constituents and tending to fixing a party in deep trouble.
So he’ll quit the House.
I won’t presume he read the blog. It’s fair, though, to ask whether he maybe, perhaps saw it … or heard about it.
