Donna Brazile, campaign manager for Al Gore’s presidential bid and a former board member for the Millennium March on Washington, has announced that she plans to run for a seat on the District of Columbia council. “I have been in politics all my life. This city has done great things for me, and I want to give back,” Brazile told The Washington Post. “I am going to meet with community leaders, and then I am considering throwing my hat in the ring.... I’m not going to sit on the sideline and be a spectator.”
