Personal aside: Time for the DNC to find a new interim chairwoman

This is a personal aside, but it seems to me that the Democratic Party, in particular the DNC, is in dire need of significant reform.  It is only because of all the focus (justified as it is) on the disfunction of the Republican Party this election cycle that news such as the favoritism of the past chair of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, towards Hillary Clinton and the similar corruption of the process by the current interim chairwoman, Donna Brazile, is not dominating the news.  The DNC should follow CNN’s lead on this and fire Brazile (imagine the uproar if a member of the media had fed Trump debate questions).  The vote Hillary crowd is right of course that a Trump Presidency would be tragic, but before the celebration for (hopefully) avoiding such a disaster, I hope Democrats and even the incoming Clinton Administration will clean house at the DNC.  A party that acts the way it has, under such leadership, cannot expect to sustain the sort of passion that will be needed to advance a progressive agenda, or even any agenda at all.
