Best interest of the party?


In the span of 24 hours, Rhode Island Democratic Party Chairman William Lynch has decided that he is his party’s best choice to replace Patrick Kennedy in Congress.   Lynch is supposedly elected to do what is best for the state Democratic party, not necessarily what is best for Bill Lynch.

So in about 24 hours, he has had the chance to speak with everyone interested and determine who is best for the party’s chances of keeping the seat? Or is he jumping in quickly in hopes of warding off other challenges, possibly from a better candidate?  Apparently not, as Providence Mayor David Cicilline is also jumping into the fray.

Doesn’t this just smell wrong to the people of the Democratic party?  Sure, any citizen is entitled to run for any seat he or she wants, but Lynch has chosen to represent the party and do what’s best.  Maybe he is the best Democratic candidate, but shouldn’t they take more time to vet out the whole process?
