    I've voted for third party candidates often--Shirley Chisholm, John Anderson. Family members voted for Jesse Jackson, Ross Perot...The current stakes are too high for such foolishness, even though doing so would be fairly harmless in this state.

    I voted for Jesse Jackson in the '84 Democratic Primary in the hopes of shaking things up a bit. By the time the next opportunity came in '88, I was pretty much over that.

    When Chrysler announced plans to close Kenosha’s largest employer probably in the 80’s Jesse came and spoke hoping to save the plant. He was phenomenal.

    Didn’t he though! I’ll never forget the recording that came into our ZIP Code for the national presidential election year —was it the year 2000?— Anyway, the recording was good old Jessie saying “get your souls to the polls! “ The only problem was That my neighbor received a recording well after 7:00 PM when the polls close. The Democratic machine got a court order to keep the polls open because of some kind of shenanigans I can’t remember. It’s pretty clear Jesse and his cohorts had planned for the “emergency” extension of voting to take place.

    I do remember a time when Jesse was not a cartoon character, he was sincere and pretty legitimate for when he represented.
