This just in. Gov. Jim Douglas is now vice chairman of the National Governors Association. That means next year -- I assume only if he is re-elected -- he would become chairman.
It seems the NGA
alternates between an R and a D and this year's new chairman is Gov. Edward Rendell
of Pennsylvania. He's a Democrat.
If Douglas gets the chance to move to the top NGA
job, he would join a roster that includes Gov. Howard Dean (1994-5) and Gov. Richard Snelling
So I wonder what he will make as his focus for the year. The gov at the top gets to pick a topic. Any suggestions?
