5. hey, this is going to be a tough race
the economy is in the toilet, the legislature could care less as long as they don't get blamed, and the inablity of the state democratic party to capitalize on this shows how weak the organization is in the state. without the deep union roots, the state may not have gone to Gore or Kerry. The progressive resurgence is much weaker here than in PA, NY and OH. Although it could and should be much stronger with a coalition of labor and green technology pioneers. And not just with transportation but across the board, from wind, solar and other solutions to help reduce home heating bills. With some of the fiercest winters in the nation, MI could easily become a pioneer in technology that could make individual homes energy sources sending power back to the grid by various innovations. The future starts today, let's sieze it
