Not so sure this is a good thing…

DNC “chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz [is becoming], practically overnight, the face of the Democratic Party in this election year, writes Monica Langley in the Wall Street Journal.

… The 45-year-old congresswoman from South Florida follows the GOP presidential candidates from state to state, traveling to 71 cities in 27 states since election season began. She is a round-the-clock talking head on cable and local media. On Florida’s primary day, Ms. Wasserman Schultz appeared on 26 TV, radio and print outlets in an 18-hour period from Fort Lauderdale and Tampa. She’s also a prolific fund-raiser. …. In picking Ms. Wasserman Schultz to lead the Democrats, the president turned to a reliably liberal member of his party’s House caucus rather than a moderate, suggesting he is counting on her more to fire up the party’s base than lure in swing voters.”
