Just watched the Big Dawg on LinkTV.
I missed the first 5 or 10 minutes, because I had just walked in the door. But when I tuned in, he was talking about "interdependence". I couldn't help myself, I kept yelling "YES! YES! That's what I've been saying all along!"

Later, he talked about "keeping score" - yes, mistakes are inevitable; keep score so you know what worked and what the mistakes were. (Yes!)

I didn't always agree with the Big Dawg, but if there is any question as to his committment or his intelligence, his speech before the Clinton Foundation Fundraisers will wipe them all away.

I had heard of some of the successes that his fundraiser accomplished, and now I know why.

I am forced to be reminded of the SNL "Funhouse" cartoons by Robert Smigel of the "Ex Presidents".

Until now, Carter was the greatest Ex President we ever had. Clinton is about to pass him.

Why is it that Republican Ex Presidents never do anything, but Democratic Ex Presidents accomplish as much or more as they did during their Presidencies?

Hmmmm..., could it be COMMITTMENT? or SINCEREITY? or HONESTY?

1. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they realize that they
are but a small piece in the puzzle....the catalyst....and that they can impact the lives of many people in positive ways.....they realize it's not just about them....just an observation...

* was trying to outdo the big dawg.....in popularity in boldness etc...and he has failed....

2. Yep, the Democrats have an entrepreneurial spirit
and are the most creative. Republicans feed off of Demo genius.
Then, they become jealous, plotting to steal what demos have created.
It's a vicious effing circle. Demos have never learned to protect what they create.
