Re: Et tu, Garrison Keillor
Were men really pigs all along?
Many of them were. And many women have suffered in silence.

Re: Gillibrand Campaign Insiders Felt Franken Resignation Foiled Her Bid
Franken screwed up her political career by resigning???
The way I would put it, is that Gillibrand screwed up her own career when she made an unwarranted attack on Franken.
For sure, that's the main reason that I ruled her out of consideration from the get go. And I know several other people who have expressed similar reactions.

Re: What if Al was in the picture
I have been a fan of Al. But if he were running right now, I would not be enthusiastic.
He's too old. Yes, he is younger than the geriatric crowd who are running. But I really think this is the time when we need a younger candidate. At present, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar are the only remaining credible candidates who meet that criterion. I'm suspecting that is partly why Pete is doing relatively well.
