Shaheen out of DNC chair contention...
CBS News's Political Unit reports that former NH Gov. Jeanne Shaheen says she is not interested in being the next chair of the Democratic National Committee.
I haven't found any other online link for this news yet.
Shaheen is the second DNC potential who was closely tied to John Kerry (Vilsack was the first). Kerry isn't having much luck influencing this selection so far if he can't get his choices to even throw their hats in the ring.
