I just got a press release from the Democratic Governors Association announcing, "Glendening Named DGA National Political Director." Naturally, I thought at first they meant Parris, but really it's Raymond, the son of the former Maryland governor.

Raymond was already working for DGA this year, which is run by Nathan Daschle -- son of the former senator and apparent HHS pick.

All this reminded me of a time last year when an old college friend was in town trying to shop his idea for a book. It was kind of a left-bashing thing and everyone he pitched it to was a child of Brit Hume or Gordon Liddy or some other offspring of the vast right-wing conspiracy.

I guess politics has always been a family business. Remember all the talk of dynasty when it looked like Hillary Clinton would succeed the second President Bush?
