He's asking me to support Klobuchar with money. I won't do it.

3. That is what I did
Klobuchar's people called to ask if I would march with Amy's dad in a parade over the 4th. I said that since Amy didn't support the public option, I wasn't interested in supporting her.

4. She was on Gary Eichten's show yesterday live from the fair
He did ask her how she responded to criticisms that she doesn't tackle the hard issues. She reeled off a list of mainly constituent services that her office has done saying (paraphrasing a bit as I'm working from memory) "some people think those are little issues, but they're big to the people involved." Ummmmm.. Amykins, all Senators and Reps do that stuff - even the Republicans - you'd be even more pathetic if your office didn't deal with issues like those.

As I was at work my attention span came and went while I was listening, but I did not catch anyone asking her any hard questions. I may have missed something, but I really started to wonder if the audience had been screened or if she had managed to get the audience packed with supporters. Had I not been at work I would probably have spent most the interview yelling at the radio.

7. I would guess one will

Though I expect it will be the one who puts "DFL" after her name. That's assuming, of course, that the electorate has forgiven her for opposing texting while driving - perhaps they have come to admire her courage. :ROFL:

8. Have to consider her base but we know about her. Could be a lot worse.
