Note on the Texas Democratic Party Chair Election
I am neutral in the Texas Democratic State Party Chair race.
I have known Boyd Richie, Glen Maxey, and Charlie Urbina Jones each for a long time. Any one of them will be a step forward for the party in comparison with the past.
I am offended by the demonizing that is going on of the other candidates by some of the supporters of each candidate. All three of these candidates are good persons and good Democrats. Each one has his own and different strengths and weaknesses, and each one's strengths outweigh his weaknesses.
I'm not a delegate at the state convention and thus do not have a vote in the election of the new party chair. The election belongs to the voting delegates; meeting in convention assembled they are the supreme governing authority of the state party. I trust the wisdom of the delegates to make the best choice as they see it, and I am ready to work with whichever candidate they choose, for victory in November 2006 to wrest the robber barons out of their control of Texas and return it to the people.

Great post! I could not agree more with the sentiment.
However, I have only seen the supporters of one particular candidate unfairly sliming the other leading candidate.
I only have visiblity to the internet and my local meetings, so I don't know what happens outside of my view, though. Every time I see the actions of those supporters, I like their candidate less.
