Why is this person in charge of the Democratic National Committee?

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

That would have been very good.

She's the chair because the DNC has become unimportant. Obama ignored it in both his election campaigns, Clinton seems to be on the same path, and Sanders has very little use for it too. Martin O'Malley wants it to be significant again, for lots of reasons, but he's swimming against the tide.

In the post Citizens United world, the two party national committees have become superfluous. The actual electoral mechanics are now being run by the billionaire sugar daddies funding the campaigns.

Rhetorical question.
Because the party was sold to the big money donors 25(+/-) years ago.
Look at the DCCC.
