Who Will replace Kaine as DNC Chair? -
is the big question circulating around politicos. DNC chair Tim Kaine is expected to announce soon his intention to run for Virginia U.S. Senate against Republican George Allen.

Former Ohio Governor Tim Strickland is among the front runners for the DNC job, but look to see a woman named. Donna Brazile, former campaign chair for the Al Gore campaign for president comes to mind. She is a frequent political analyst on the T.V. circuit and has been an officer in the DNC for years.
