6. ya know, i remember bill clinton saying-

 

that people always asked him in later years how he managed to balance the budget. did he have a secret weapon?
yes, arithmetic. apparently, it's a secret.

bloomberg knows how to see a big picture and not just add up the numbers, but add up the right numbers.
we tried a soda tax in chi, but the propaganda got it overturned. but anyone who looked at the numbers had to admit that it was a brilliantly targeted fee that would pay off hugely if no one paid it any more.
his many actions and plans take our human capitol into account in a way that is very, very smart.
our county board pres here in cook is in the same vein. and i love her.

like several others, i am super thrilled to have all of them in the race. the more people out there punching twitler in the face every damn day, as well as knocking on doors, the more nails their were in the gop's coffin.
steyer is even starting to grow on me. he is pretty good at deflecting stupid questions, and answering the question that should be asked.

(side note- went to jan schakowsky's holiday party this weekend. chatted w her hubby bob creamer. told him i was on team ew, but like having yang in the race. made above comment about our many candidates, and he agreed w a large smile.)
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
