Vermont Democrats have something else to celebrate besides the creation and failure of the first statewide socialized medicine system in America. Recovering from that glorious triumph, Vermont Democrats have elected their first Muslim state party chairman.
The lucky fellow is Faisal Gill who called his victory a rebuke of President Trump. "To have a Muslim and immigrant to be the state party chair sends a really strong message to Trump and his type of politics that this is not where the country is at."
Gill's election doesn't send much of a message about where America is at. But it certainly sends a message about where the Democrats are at.
