Edwards drops out of Presidential race

I just read about John Edwards dropping out of the Democratic Presidential race. This makes me sad, because I truly believe that he was the only candidate who was speaking about the real problems we're facing, and not worried about spin or the media. I'm really in a dilemma about who I will support now. I think Hillary is trying to speak on the issues, but what she is trying to say gets lost in the hoopla of "Bill and Hill". I know she is a smart and intelligent, but, can she beat McCain, who appears to be the Republican frontrunner. Recent polling said no. I think Obama is a very motivating and inspiration speaker, but, I'm not really sure where he stands on a lot of things. Guess I have some work to do before February 19.

Stay tuned.....


I am very sad as well. Who will I support now?

Food for thought

Just something I've been mulling over today.... if you were someone who primarily leaned toward a Democratic philosophy, and decided to run for office, would you run as a Republican just because you feel that you could not get elected as a Democrat in that area. I just have a really tough time dealing with this kind of attitude from would be politicians----what kind of scruples does a person have who could do that? Would I want them for my elected official? No way!

Early candidate likes

We want to go on the record saying we don't agree with our union on their early pick and subsequent endorsement for President. We like John Edwards. Whatever.

We also like (in no particular order):

Jess King for the 18th Senate district in Wisconsin.

Roger Kittleson who's running against Tom Petri.

Gordon Hintz for 54th Assembly district in Wisconsin.

Mark Westphal for 55th Assembly district in Wisconsin.

Any Democrat who will do a good job in the 53rd Assembly district. All you have to do is be able to stay awake during Assembly sessions and you will be doing better than the incumbent, who's said she's not running again.


Hey, we're not dead--we're still peeping!

Yes, there's no excuse for our absence. Laziness, you name it.
