The internal politics of the North Carolina Democratic Party are a mystery to me, so I’m lost when people ask, essentially, “WTF is Randy Voller up to?” So I refer you to an insightful piece by an observer I trust: Bob Geary with Indy Week.
Geary begins: “After a stormy year as state Democratic Party chair, Randy Voller should step down for the sake of his party’s candidates and North Carolina. I say this knowing that he won’t, because Voller sees himself as a visionary leader—but he can’t see that he’s hurting Democratic prospects for 2014.”
And Geary concludes with a spot-on observation about a party chairman’s duty: “In election years, the job is to elect candidates—not be the story instead of them.”
Amen. The future of Democratic candidates – not to mention that of North Carolina, the nation and the free world – might depend on whether the party’s executive committee remembers this admonition when it meets March 9.

    Chairman of the Democratic Party should be an easy job. Like anyone in charge you are graded by what success you have. I think you grade success by how many Democrats you put in the state government. That also should be like falling off a stump. Promise to give everyone everything they want. No one should have to work, everything should be free, and Santa Clause comes 52 weeks a year. I could do that job in my sleep.
