"Hayes has given tens of thousands of dollars to state campaigns over the past decade"

There you have it folks. Whoever contributes MONEY to the Democratic party gets the BIG positions.

I am a huge fan of Governor-elect Beverly Perdue. She will be a no-nonsense, hands-on Governor. Her appointments are based on her nominees' proven experience, not on how much they contributed to her campaign. Judging from her speeches, I would say she will be a proactive Governor, not a reactive one. There will be no horses before the cart in her administration. North Carolina is facing serious revenue shortfalls due to a failing economy, job loss and fewer gasoline sales. Beverly Perdue is qualified to handle these problems and to make judicious decisions on how to meet these challenges.

I hope you're right. If she does keep her promises, she will be the first Democrat in history to do so.

I certainly hope you're right, but it remains to be seen. We have a multitude of problems here in NC, not the least of which we are taxed, taxed, taxed. As an example, gasoline was selling for 1.38 per gallon on Lady Island, SC this week. In my hometown here in NC, it sells for 1.68. Why the difference? Gasoline taxes. Gasoline is cheapter in all the states that surround NC. NC has one of the highest gasoline taxes in the nation, and not much to show for it. Purdue has her work cut out for her, but if she's got some bright ideas about raising taxes, or creating more taxes, then she's a one-termer.
