Bloggers running for public office. At some point, we have to stop talking and start doing. While I can promise you that I will never run for public office, my contribution offline is going to be something else, I’m happy to support others if they give it a go. I wish Bruce the best of luck.
One thought on “What We Need More Of”
The last election, our US Senator (I think it was the Senator, but it might have been the Representative) ran unopposed. I was already pissed because he voted for the bailouts, and I decided that I would run against him if he was unopposed this time around. Common sense has since prevailed – I would be a politically lousy candidate (divorced, gay, and conservative, just to start), and I can’t afford to actually pay for a campaign, anyway. I also don’t want to expose myself or my family to the media attacks that would ensue, and I fear navigating the campaign finance labyrinth.
It’s almost like the current system is designed to discourage people from running for office, or something.
