Nothing wrong with keeping the spotlight on New Orleans

DNC meeting set to begin in New Orleans:
"The choice of New Orleans for the Democratic National Committee meeting that begins Thursday was part of a political calculation, as is a three-day agenda for the 400 delegates that combines party business with community service.

Eight months after Hurricane Katrina and the widespread criticism of the administration's response, Democrats hope their reconstruction work leaves an image with voters that lasts through the congressional midterm elections.

'It's reinforcing an impression that is widely held among the public and one that will be a critical theme for Democrats across the country - namely that this administration is dangerously incompetent,' said Steve McMahon, a Democratic strategist and a longtime adviser to party chairman Howard Dean."
That quote is followed of course by some Republican complaining about how this is dirty partisan politics. Hee hee.
