Guess they don't mind getting busted and all the bad press. If he runs his campaign this way..

think what he'd be like in office.

Experienced campaigners from both sides of the aisle said using a person’s image in a campaign advertisement without their permission is unethical. A well-oiled campaign will ensure that everyone whose picture is taken is asked to sign a release form at the time the picture is taken, they said.

That wouldn't be them.


Damn she's good. Smart, Logical, and sane!

‏@MSNBC .@HillaryClinton defines what it means to be progressive at the #DemDebate. Watch live: http://on.msnbc.com/23L9d02

Sen Al Franken (D-Minn.) opened for Hillary Clinton Saturday night in Portsmouth with one very important message: she's good enough, she's smart enough, and doggone it, she's a Paul Wellstone progressive.

I'm Al Franken, I'm a Senator from Minnesota, and I hold the seat that Paul Wellstone once held. And I can point to someone on this stage whom I wouldn't be senator from Minnesota , and that is Hillary Clinton. My first election was kind of close. I won by 312 votes. Hillary Clinton came twice for me, once in October and then I got a call from her the Sunday before the election, she said "I'm coming out." And we did a big rally in Duluth and got more than 312 votes at that rally, I gotta tell you. I'm a Paul Wellstone progressive. And let me tell you what that means: Paul said, "We all do better when we all do better." Now if I knew what a haiku was, I'd say that was a haiku. But evidently I'm told it isn't. But Paul knew that we all do better when we all do better

Mahalo rivers! I remember something Paul Wellstone said.. he was asked why he was a Democrat... he said he preferred to do missionary work within the party. I miss him so much.

Eric Holder's sister-in-law was Vivian Malone Jones

Stand in the Schoolhouse Door

On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down its decision regarding the case called Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, in which the plaintiffs charged that the education of black children in separate public schools from their white counterparts was unconstitutional.

Brown v. Board of Education meant that the University of Alabama had to be desegregated. In the years following, hundreds of African-Americans applied for admission, but all were denied. The University worked with police to find any disqualifying qualities, or when this failed, intimidated the applicants. But in 1963, three African-Americans with perfect qualifications—Vivian Malone Jones, Dave McGlathery and James Hood—applied, refusing to be intimidated. In early June a federal district judge ordered that they be admitted, and forbade Governor Wallace from interfering

On June 11, Vivian Malone and James Hood arrived to register. Wallace, attempting to uphold his promise as well as for political show, blocked the entrance to Foster Auditorium with the media watching. Then, flanked by federal marshals, Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach told Wallace to step aside. However, Wallace cut Katzenbach off and refused, giving a speech on States' rights. Katzenbach called President John F. Kennedy, who federalized the Alabama National Guard. General Henry Graham then commanded Wallace to step aside, saying, "Sir, it is my sad duty to ask you to step aside under the orders of the President of the United States." Wallace then spoke further, but eventually moved, and Malone and Hood registered as students.


Eric Holder is married to Dr. Sharon Malone, an obstetrician; the couple has three children. Malone's sister was Vivian Malone Jones, famous for her part in the which led to integration at the University of Alabama...

Mahalo, BlueCali, for saying that so eloquently about President Obama. He's the only

POTUS I've ever been interested in, and what a chocked full of compelling days he and Michelle, and his Admin have had.

So this debate is about whether a guy who led us into 14 million new jobs and 17 million newly insured knows what he's doing.

Rubio has now reverted to the same stump speech line about Obama 4 times, Twice was a mistake, 3 times was odd. I don't have words for 4th.

My Brother's Keeper! Obama's Retirement Plan: "Help Black Kids"! The Best!



Thank you for your OP, she~

Wow! Thank you so much for this comprehensive list of what President Obama has done for

the African American Community, Frenchie!

And, appointing AG Eric Holder. for what he has Accomplished is invaluable..

America’s first black attorney general: Eric Holder’s legacy

Holder has attacked Republican efforts across the country to pass voter ID laws that would disproportionately suppress African-American and Latino voters. He issued new guidance to schools and the zero-tolerance discipline policies that have sent minority students on a fast track to the criminal justice system. He has urged the reduction of harsh sentences for low-level drug offenders — a move seen as a way of remedying the decades-long war on drugs that has filled U.S. prisons with black and brown bodies

When Holder was appointed the nation’s top lawyer in 2009, he promised to use his office to aggressively enforce civil rights law. And while he has been criticized for his role in a number of controversial policy matters involving civil liberties and a well-publicized botched gun trafficking sting, his work in enforcing rights and balancing the scales of justice, especially for minorities, has earned him high praise.
Ifill called Holder’s vision for the civil rights division of the Department of Justice “one of restoration and transformation, from his leadership on voting rights, to legal services for the poor, to criminal justice reforms and, in recent weeks, to his forceful response to the tragic events in Ferguson.”


“When the history of his tenure is written, Eric Holder will ultimately be recognized as one of the finest attorneys general this country has ever known.”

Much MOre~ http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/americas-first-black-attorney-general-eric-holders-legacy
