is seven months before any votes are cast.

The campaign I'm running is a top target for the local Republicans in 2008, my candidate and the press don't get along very well, and we were facing a gadfly primary against an opponent who was going to make us spend money, even though he couldn't beat us.

I came on board in July, with a priority list of righting relations with the press, raising money and lining up the establishment behind my candidate. The press stuff is moving slowly but surely the right way. Money is going well. And today we dropped our list of endorsements, including every major local Democrat, dozens of precinct chairs, and a few non-partisan types to boot.

Three hours later, our primary opponent dropped out of the race.

Ahh.... victory.  icon_biggrin

Meh, I need to  run for president in like 8 years to help formulate a viable third party to combat the clear lack of difference between the current political parties.

Dont expect to win, but if I am lucky, I can do public speaking for the rest of my life and not have to get a real job smile

Is... is that a joke? We have much more stringent customs regulations; any american politician is automatically given the title of "Syndicate Crime Boss"... along with "Retard by Choice". This automatically refuses passage to Canada, let alone citizenship.

Oh, and that second classification explicitly keeps YOU out, CeeKay. Tongue

Hehe...

In all seriousness though, our entire government population, federal and state, needs a complete reboot at this point. The corruption, waste, and lack of accountability is incomprehensible.

Hence the need for a third party to clean out this sillyness.
