50. All you've said about picking a candidate is very PRUDENT.
What this reminds me of is all the same sort of attacks on DU from Salazar supporters, when others were supporting Miles. All the same stuff about how "electable" Salazar was, how skilled he was with various things, etc etc etc.

It was clear that Salazar had the party BIG MONEY, and the obvious backing of the BIG MONEY INTERESTS. Miles had no money, but LOTS of grass roots support.

So, fast forward, and not even very long in time.... Salazar is elected, Salazar introduces Gonzales (and of course votes for the fascist!), then Salazar sells out completely and becomes part of the 14!!! He completely sold out our Democracy by making even a filibuster impossible, which lead to the passing of all manner of evil.

Yet, NOT ONE Salazar supporter ever had the integrity to say "We were wrong".

Here we are again... there are many very good Dem contenders, and now the same very angry denouncements of any criticism of another DLCer with several issues that need to be examined.

What in the world does it take?

How many times do we have to be sold out before we're willing to look with open eyes???

Thanks for having the willingness to actually post about Richardsons weaknesses without trashing him.

It's too bad there can't be a bit more rationality.

I hope we don't have to learn the hard way once again!
