"The Democratic Party, under the president-elect, is overlooking the South. I am concerned, but I don't have much of a say in the process. I know a lot of Southern, conservative Democrats, and they're being taken for granted."
But don't fret. Congressman Lincoln Davis says he'll watch out for our interests with his new seat on the mighty Appropriations Committee. Sen. Lamar Alexander says he too will represent the viewpoints of Tennesseans. He says he's especially fond of Obama's choice of Arne Duncan as secretary of education. When Alexander was running for president, he wanted to abolish the education department, but now he cares about those issues again.
