James Roosevelt Jr. - Co-chair, DNC Rules and By-laws Committee, and Co-chair, Democratic National Convention Credentials Committee
"Any kind of attribute that you think would be appropriate for someone in that job, he has it," said Don Fowler of South Carolina, who, upon being named chairman of the national party in 1995, promoted Roosevelt to succeed him as co-chairman of the rules committee. Fowler called the standoff over whether to seat Florida and Michigan "a monumental problem that almost seems insoluble." He
said Roosevelt "is going to have to be Jesus and Moses all at the same time, and maybe Solomon too."

Roosevelt, a superdelegate to the nominating convention in late August, has maintained strict neutrality toward presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton until all the convention issues are
resolved. If the Rules and Bylaws Committee doesn't settle matters, the dispute will fall to the convention Credentials Committee. Roosevelt will also be co-chairman on that panel when it is constituted in late June. - "Old pro to referee delegate dispute," Boston Globe, 3/25/08
