"This Week" With Donna Brazile

By Alan Smithee

Hey ABC, give Donna Brazile a chance to show her chops by letting her host "This Week." Now that George Stephanopoulos has made the decision to host "Good Morning America," this provides a shot for Brazile, since ABC must be diametrically opposed to elevating conservative George Will. Donna is a fascinating character and "This Week" is the perfect vehicle for her particular brand of Southern charm and political savy. Our president has known Brazile for almost three decades and he says that ABC could not make a better choice.

BACKGROUND

Donna Brazile, left, is currently the founder and managing director of Brazile and Associates, a political consulting and grassroots advocacy firm based in Washington, D.C. She became the first African American to lead a major presidential campaign when she headed the Gore-Lieberman campaign in 2000. Brazile is also chair of the Democratic National Committee’s Voting Rights Institute (VRI) and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University. Brazile is the author of "Cooking with Grease: Stirring the Pots in America," a memoir about her life in the political arena. A weekly contributor and political commentator for CNN, Brazile is also a political consultant for ABC News and a contributor to National Public Radio (NPR). She is also a columnist for Ms. magazine and Roll Call, the weekly Congressional newspaper. Donna was a leading advocate, along with musician Stevie Wonder, in getting the Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday established as a national holiday.
