Need We Say More?
Los Angeles Times -- February 14
Villaraigosa will chair Democratic National Convention
"We're committed in this city to embracing every Angeleno, whether they're born here or not, whether they're legal or not." --- L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa
    Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been selected chairman of this summer's Democratic National Convention, elevating his role as a surrogate in the Latino community and raising his national profile at a time Villaraigosa considers his political future. A formal announcement was scheduled Wednesday in Washington, with the mayor planning to join President Obama on Wednesday night for a presidential fundraiser in Los Angeles.
    As convention chairman, Villaraigosa will wield the gavel during the event in Charlotte, N.C., which opens with a festival on Sept. 3 and continues for three days of official business, including the nomination of Obama and his acceptance speech.
    Villaraigosa will also serve as a spokesman for the convention, starting with a Web video the party planned to release on Wednesday.

    If Republicans don't point out that Villaraigosa reports to Mexico City, they are cowards.
