Roark Responds To Hansen Dismissal

Idaho Democrat Chairman Keith Roark told Kevin Richert/Idaho Statesman the following re: executive Jim Hansen's firing today: "There is no 'scapegoating' involved. Jim Hansen is in no way to blame for the results of this past election. The IDP has little or nothing to do or say about the individual campaigns of our candidates and Jim is no more responsible for a losing campaign than he is for a winning campaign. Obviously, the IDP must take on the challenges ahead with new ideas, new approaches and some new faces. This move has nothing to do with what is now behind us and everything to do with what lies ahead." More here.

Question: Who would you want to see become the new Idaho Democrat Party exec?
