Political And Other Miscellany From A Stout Democrat In Dallas Texas.
"Politics is the only game for adults." --from Robert A. Heinlein's Double Star

Monday, January 29, 2007


Stats on the number of click-throughs to Democratic Presidential campaigns from our last issue listing them all show that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were tied among our readers. As it happens, those are also the top two in the national polls. It varies in individual states, with different polls showing Clinton or John Edwards ahead in Iowa -- but that is almost one year away, and a lot can change. Meanwhile, John Kerry has taken himself out of the race, and seems to feel more free to criticize administration idiocy
as a result.

Here in Dallas, potential Obama supporters will be meeting Wednesday of this week, and those interested in Bill Richardson will meet next Tuesday. (See below for details.)

Wednesday, January 31: First Meeting of the Dallas Barack Obama for President Meetup Group; more info at this page (7 to 9 PM, Gloria's Restaurant, 3715 Greenville Ave., Dallas)

Tuesday, February 6: Meet Up for Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico for President. Bruce Rothstein writes "Whether you are already inclined to support him, or just want to find out more, join us for an initial Bill Richardson for President gathering.... We’ll talk about what we can do to help, and expect to receive a phone message from Bill Richardson during the meeting. RSVP by email to bersmr AT or just show up." (6:30 PM, La Madeleine, Preston and Forest --
northeast corner, Dallas)
