WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- U.S. Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe named a commission Friday to assemble recommendations on the party's 2008 nominating process.

The commission, McAuliffe said, will be led by former Clinton Labor Secretary Alexis Herman and U.S. Rep. David Price, D-N.C., and will study the scheduling of Democratic presidential primaries and caucuses and make recommendations for the 2008 nominating process.

"I am confident that under the leadership of Secretary Herman and Congressman Price, the commission will develop recommendations that fully embrace the party's commitment to openness and fairness for voters and candidates and help to produce the strongest possible nominee," McAuliffe said.

Other members of the commission include Gore-Liberman '00 Campaign Manager Donna Brazile, Pennsylvania Gov. and former DNC Chairman Ed Rendell, AFL-CIO head John Sweeney and former Clinton White House staffer Harold Ickes.
