Politics of Convenience

This is America, where you can grow up to be President.

But if you don’t think you can win, you can always run for the Senate.  Or the House. 

And if the incumbent is a Democrat, you can run as a Republican.  Or vice versa.  Whatever works.

The Senate field is crowded?  Run for Governor.  Don’t want to deal with that god awful budget mess?  Run for Attorney General.  Tired of being Mayor?  Run for Governor! Lieutenant Governor! Comptroller!

Several of this year’s crop of candidates have given “Refuse To Lose” an entirely new meaning.    But it’s sure going to be fun.


About Gerry

I've been covering Connecticut news and sports since 1974. I know, I don't look that old.

    It certainly is going to be fun. People are filing suit to be able to run. Everyone is coming out of the woodwork to announce they are running. (sorry janet). People have waited for other people not to run before they would run.(you know who you are). And like you said Gerry, lost at senator, try the Gov., or congressman. What ever happened to the good old days when you wanted to try public service you first went for the local board of ed or town council. ***Baby steps people… Baby steps

    I think what get’s me the most crazy are all of these candidates running for the senate who are ALL going to change Washington. Really; you, the freshman senator… your the one who’s gonna make all of the other senior senators stop and say “oh my”. Do these candidates really think we are all that ignorant?
    surely they aren’t that ignorant. I’m going to vote for a senator, but I’m not going to hold out on thier sweeping change, sorry. Try a better catch phrase huh.
