    The blog entry you made Oct. 1st is etched in stone as much as the next mini-CR from the House when they they have sh*t on their face.
    I want to see addendums throughout the month, with a new label from you.
    Don't let your fan club down.
    Keeping this alive every day for 13 months helps the good guys, us Nunn-type Democrats.
    I have missed the level headedness and reasonableness since Sam retired. When in the 90's Georgia had Paul Coverdale and Sam Nunn, a Republican and a Democratic and both worked hard to make the U.S. strong and to take care of its people in the right way. But today I suppose most of the political parties hard cores would classify both as a RINO and a DINO. Talk about leadership needed to do the right thing, both those senators had it.

    I think Jimmy Carter was the last Democratic Presidential candidate I voted for. Senator Cleland the last Democratic Senator I voted for, Max replaced Sam Nunn. Representative Richard Ray the last Democratic Representative I voted for. Strange as it may seem, Ray was originally from Perry GA. served as Perry's mayors which was Sam Nunn's home town. But if you note, there wasn't an Atlanta Liberal among those whom I voted for.

    But between Reform and Libertarian candidates, I have voted for that many Republicans either. I sure don't like our present Governor.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Do you remember "Scoop" Jackson from Washington, the "Senator from Boeing"? Dad loved him.
    Repubs are trying to spin that Con Dems are adopting con positions.
    That is why they will keep losing close Red races.
    I do, however, respect you for being even-handed and level-headed.

    Sure I remember Scoop Jackson. You could say he was in the same mold as Sam Nunn. He ran for president the same year Jimmy did. All of my old Democratic Icon's are either retired or long dead.

    Re: Who do you hold at fault for the Govt shutdown?

    Okay. 1) Senate 2) House 3) Governors 4) State legislatures and down..
    This is why the Repubs won in 2010..Sen. Kaine was out of his league compared to Michael Steele. Crickets from Repubs.
    And Christie over Paul for the 2016, who I could vote for.

    Scoop Jackson was a great American.

    Re: Who do you hold at fault for the Govt shutdown?

    I'm going to say neither. I'm actually surprised it took this long to happen. It's merely a reflection of the extreme ideological divide amongst Americans. We've become so polarized we can't reconcile two halves of the country. We're going to have to be willing to compromise on both sides (no, slightly less than what the democrats/republicans want is not compromise).
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.

    the idea of Clinton or Biden, although I liked Joe as a Senator and I think he has done a great job as VP, I just can't picture him as President, Hillary neither. Perhaps it is a southerner's fetish with someone from New England, I don't see myself voting for Christie either. I suppose I am hopping a third party candidate with tons of money may step forward ala Perot in 92 with a meaningful message and creditable campaign.

    I think if Daniels from Indiana ran, I would vote for him. Perhaps an Alexander or a Susan Martinez on the GOP side. Hickenlooper was interesting to me for a while, but the gun control law there has dropped him off my radar. Nixon of Missouri I have heard a lot of good things about him. But all in all, I will just wait.

    I agree, we need more people like him in elected office.
