Democrats May Split DNC Post

New Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) "said party leaders are seriously considering naming two people to chair the Democratic National Committee, a proposal that would help boost Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack's bid to lead the party's political machine," Roll Call reports.

"Such a scenario would help the Democratic Party's central fundraising and political arm portray an outside-the-Beltway image while still making sure that the headquarters is run by a hands-on manager."

The proposal is similar to the set up under former President Bill Clinton who named two DNC chairmen: Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) as general chairman and Donald Fowler as national chairman. "Dodd was the figurehead and primary spokesperson, while Fowler oversaw the DNCís daily operations."
