    You need to explore your future as a political consultant. You clearly have a bright future in it. In fact your future’s so bright i’d recommend that you wear shades.

    All that I have heard about Pelosi is the possibility of trump and pence going down in one fell swoop and Nancy as trump calls her stepping into the Presidency.

    I could sell stuff like this:

    I ask you, my fellow Americans: is this the kind of person we want in public office to set an example for our youth ? Of course, it's not surprising that he should have such a typically pristine background -- no, not when you consider the other members of his family:



    • His female relatives put on a constant pose of purity and innocence, and claim they are inscrutable, yet every one of them has taken part in hortatory activities
    • The men in the family are likewise completely amenable to moral suasion
    • My opponent's second cousin is a Mormon
    • His uncle was a flagrant heterosexual
    • His sister, who has always been obsessed by sects, once worked as a proselyte outside a church
    • His father was secretly chagrined at least a dozen times by matters of a pecuniary nature
    • His youngest brother wrote an essay extolling the virtues of being a homosapien
    • His great-aunt expired from a degenerative disease
    • His nephew subscribes to a phonographic magazine
    • His wife was a thespian before their marriage and even performed the act in front of paying customers
    • And his own mother had to resign from a women's organization in her later years because she was an admitted sexagenarian


    Now what shall we say of the man himself ?


    I can tell you in solemn truth that he is the very antithesis of political radicalism, economic irresponsibility, and personal depravity. His own record proves that he has frequently discountenanced treasonable, un-American philosophies and has perpetrated many overt acts as well.



    • He perambulated his infant son on the street
    • He practiced nepotism with his uncle and first cousin
    • He attempted to interest a 13-year-old girl in philately
    • He participated in a seance at a private residence where, among other odd goings-on, there was incense
    • He has declared himself in favor of more homogeneity on college campuses
    • He has advocated social intercourse in mixed company -- and has taken part in such gatherings himself
    • He has been deliberately averse to crime in our streets
    • He has urged our Protestant and Jewish citizens to develop more catholic tastes
    • Last summer he committed a piscatorial act on a boat that was flying the American flag
    • Finally, at a time when we must be on our guard against all foreign "isms", he has coolly announced his belief in altruism -- and his fervent hope that some day this entire nation will be altruistic !


    I beg you, my friends, to oppose this man whose life and work and ideas are so openly and avowedly compatible with our American way of life. A vote for him would be a vote for the perpetuation of everything we hold dear.


    The facts are clear; the record speaks for itself.

    I see Mrs Clinton has ruled out a 2020 run, but says “I’m not going anywhere”.

    He also is a bit of an environmentalist, so he may restrict beer access to coal miners.

    I think Hick was well like as mayor and governor. I thought of him as a moderate liberal and he didn't rile up either side that much. The states economy seemed to do better than most through the financial crisis. In one of his campaigns he did a "clean" campaign and didn't delve into negative ads or opponent bashing. That was refreshing and almost unheard of. One of his ads featured him stepping out of the shower, illustrating a clean ad campaign.

    Unfortunately I think he is behind the pack of other heavy weight dems. My guess is that he is positioning for a cabinet position or something.

    If I were a PR guy for the democrats, I'd include a "drain the swamp" resolution as part of my campaign.

    Michael Bloomberg has now ruled out running. Your Big Gulps are safe. For now.

    I watched the interview on 60 minutes with Howard Schultz and was interested enough to go out and get his book.
    I have found it a very good read (2/3 through it). While I don't know where he stands on all the issues - I like his method attacking problems. Gathering together smart people - listening to them and together attempting to fix a problem. He is the first to admit some times he has been way off the mark. Though I see that as a positive - at least he attempted to tackle an issue, rather than just sitting back and not doing anything.

    Also like how his wife is active in helping others - she spent time at night, on the streets, helping youth in crisis. That's pretty gutsy.

    I am so tired of the Democrats, Republicans and now the socialist. People call Howard a spoiler, will guarantee a win for Trump. I don't know if I completely agree. There are enough independents out there that could make a serious challenge. Way to early to put up any lawn signs - but I like what I am seeing and am interested in learning more.

    "phew" that is a relief - from an Diet Coke addict. Hello my name is Greg - I drink way way too much Diet Coke!
    Why does the bad stuff taste so good?!
