First let me apologize to Representative Swalwell, as I’ve been spelling his name incorrectly for over a month now. Something about the fact that it took me this long to notice says a lot about how I feel about his candidacy. Meh. I took the time this morning to pull together a YouTube playlist to … Continue reading Eric Swalwell: Meh.
There’s no shortage of media coverage to try to explain why Buttigieg has captured people’s attention, but I still think it is worth explaining why he’s captured MY attention.
If Bernie Sanders is the nominee, I will be 100% on board in the general election. In general, I think he's incredibly smart and his integrity is unquestionable. You know where Bernie stands on any issue - and if he's changed his position over time, it's because he has learned something new, considered something differently, … Continue reading Bernie Sanders: He oozes integrity. In a good way.
Alan Howe is running in the Democrat primary for the 2020 US Presidential election. Do you know who Alan Howe is? Neither do I. (I wrote this entire blog post and published it with his name as Adam Howe.

Yang wants to talk about the impact of automation, Stalwell is focused on gun control, and Williamson … Continue reading Wayne Messum: I’m a No.
I love Senator Elizabeth Warren. If I am identifying my personal role models, she definitely makes the list. Her personal story is one of a woman who did not let anyone tell her that she couldn’t have it all. Senator Warren has spent her political career taking on big business – financial institutions and for-profit … Continue reading Elizabeth Warren: My Favorite Bad-Ass
I have been preparing for this moment for a year, but I am not prepared. Today I said goodbye to my sweet boy.
My opinion on Beto O’Rourke is less than fully informed, but not from lack of trying. And that might be the biggest problem that I have with O’Rourke’s candidacy right now. I’ve done a lot of reading, but other than learning that O’Rourke is generally a moderate Democrat who was a teenage hacker in a … Continue reading Beto O’Rourke: Sure.
This blog post picks on Senator Gillibrand, but only as an example of a bad habit that so many political candidates can't seem to shake. There happens to be a perfect (and current) visual example in Gillibrand, but so many campaigns suffer from a similar disease. Here are some screenshots of a video that Senator … Continue reading I – disease.
