Got my first paying gig in politics.
Had to share. I was just hired as a campaign manager. :)

1. Congrats. You can sleep in December
:)

I've done campaign work at various levels. It's a lot of work, stressful at times, but a lot of fun too.

Good luck.

18. I can only
Cheer and rants and shove my 5 cents worth into people face.

But I am an outsider,
Maybe one day I will visit America again but not now.
My last visit to US was April 2001 I think.
Right now I just dont feel like visitng any countries.
There is just too much pain and suffering in the world today.

I am sure the world will grow closer and more understanding once we pass through this cycle of madness. It begin in America and it will end in America. I wait for that day :) for it shall come to pass surely as the sunrise.

55. Friendly suggestion...

You should put on the sidebar (like under the contribute box) a place where people can sign up for a email newsletter and/or volunteer. That would make it available on every page of the site.

Just a suggestion, and the site looks great, keep up the good work!

25. I wouldn't have accepted unless she was A+. She taught me all
about politics when I first got involved during the Kucinich Campaign for President in 2004.

32. Need Both A Strong Right Wing..
...and a strong Left Wing to fly??? Holy shit!!! I just dropped a small contribution in her box and I am not even certain what position she is running for or which state she is running in....(that is an homage to you-I value your posts)for someone on DU to mention a "strong right wing" and to recognize that many peoples (and my) perception of this is that one side should advocate fiscal conservatision and business friendly policies while the other pushes labor and socially progressive policies is refreshing as Hell...To me it smells like the early 60's and I can live with that-to polite discourse,Cat...
