This is the great thing about our country... we all can have a voice.

All I can say is whoever gets in better hit the ground running and not smooching the backsides of the party down there. Otherwise the voters will elect someone else to represent them in two years. Its that simple.

Congrats Jeanne!
Mouse March 21, 2012 at 05:57 PM
Congrats, though, I still think Hage should have won. =)
Gregg Slapak March 21, 2012 at 09:22 PM
Indeed and, hopefully, a civil voice. Thanks, Cath.

Me thinketh he'd be a better legislator. Evidentally, he did not work hard enough to gain the nomination.
