About Me

Greetings from the last best place! The Crown of the Continent.

The media "calling it" yesterday was good for nobody at all.

It set Senator Sanders back on his feet, kicked him when he was down and unprepared. It left him in a very awkward position, and a very defensive one. This was no benefit certainly to him, and I don't think putting him on the defensive did Hillary any favors either. I think it left his voters with an iron will to show up today. Not that that's a bad thing! Everyone should show up. Everyone should vote! I'm just saying, it seems to me like it's more beneficial to his turnout.

It also was terribly unfair to Secretary Clinton. It robbed her of a very important and special moment with her voters and with her volunteers. It probably depressed her turnout at least as much as Sen. Sanders. I think probably a little more. She should have been able to celebrate this milestone - earning more than half of the pledged delegates, with her voters, her volunteers, and her family. No matter who your candidate was, this night is historic, and it wasn't just taken from her, it was taken from all of us.

How about this?


He can still get his agenda done. He can hold her feet to the fire. He can be the catalyst of very real change that can benefit millions. Think of all that he could get done, if we come together and secure the supreme court for 40 years, the House, and the Senate.

Here in Montana, there is real talk that we could get more Dems in office here and in Washington due to the "Trump effect." I expect that will be a story throughout the states.

I won't ask for your response now. I was on the loosing end in 2008 and I fully understand how raw and scathing and deep that pain is. I was in so not ready at this time in 2008 to talk about it. At all.

But some people reached out to me, here and there, now and then. And I thought about it. Long story short I voted for Obama twice.

We all have our own walk. I'm only asking for you to think about it over the next few months. When you're out at the lake, or the park; at work or at the store, look at the fragile among us, the vulnerable. It just can't be him.
