30. This is old too
Nancy complaining that she got no party support. She got no support from the party, most likely, because she didn't raise enough money on her own. That's how it works, unfortunately. They don't just throw money and support your way, you have to earn it and Gary's earned it. He raised over $200,000 on his own and Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer have already donated to his campaign. But it didn't just fall in his lap.

I would love to see Randi Rhodes. I listen to her almost every day, but I won't contribute to Nancy's campaign. Nancy seems to be running just because she is bitter that she didn't get party support last time around and she's pissed off with something to prove.

I am a loyal Democrat and I pitched in for Nancy, just like I did for every other Democrat on the ticket, including canvassing with her literature in Auburn Hills with the Rochester Democratic Club.

And I was also protesting at Knollenberg's office during the last cycle, doing what I could to knock Joe down a notch or two, so I won't stand for questioning my party loyalty. I just don't believe Nancy should have jumped in the race if she was truly looking out for the best interests of the party. She is not the strongest candidate and there isn't enough of a difference on policy to make her a better candidate.

No one has ever answered my question about where Nancy is better on the issues than Gary. Someone, I don't remember who, said they were going to lay it all out for me, but never has.
