Miami Herald calls Pam Bondi's "stellar' hiring of Dave Aronberg

Remember where you read this term first: “Aronberg Democrat” as in, “Instead of moping around with Alex Sink, I decided I was an “Aronberg Democrat” and wanted to be on the inside shaping the process, rather than being stuck on the outside pissing all over everything.”

Anyway, the Miami Herald editorial board opines about what a stellar decision Attorney General Pam Bondi made hiring Dave Aronberg (a move I compared to Obama’s hiring of Hillary Clinton):

Another stellar appointment of a South Florida leader indicates that, while Tallahassee will be run by Republicans the next four years, at least one Cabinet member is putting expertise over partisanship. Attorney General Pam Bondi appointed former state Sen. Dave Aronberg, a moderate Greenacres Democrat, to a new position focusing on prescription drug abuse. Mr. Aronberg co-sponsored new laws toughening rules for pain-clinic owners, making it harder to dispense hundreds of pills at a time. He lost the Democratic primary for attorney general.
