What's your favourite comfort food?

  1. It's certainly not my idea of comfort food, but it occurred to me to wonder what happened with the marijuana initiatives on state ballots this time.

    Recreational MJ:

    Arizona--no
    California-yes
    Maine--too close to call, "yes" currently has slight lead.
    Massachusetts--yes
    Nevada--yes, but insanely restrictive "DUI" law is not affected. You can be guilt of DUI MJ with only a trace of INACTIVE metabolite in your blood or urine; no THC required.

    Medical MJ:

    Arkansas--yes
    Florida--yes
    Montana--liberalize MMJ access
    North Dakota--Yes

  2. Dean, Ellison for DNC Chair [Click] Josh Marshall's take.

    The point is well taken that both organizational strategy and politics are required.  As memory serves me, both Kerry and Obama behaved rudely to Gov. Dean, and spurned his 50-state strategy.  Even though it never made it this far (Central California), I think it was a fine organizational principal.  Politically, though, Gov. Dean's time is past;  he strongly supported HRC and spurned Sanders, who was probably the Democratic Party's only good candidate this time.  The job facing the Dems is big enough that two people could be a reasonable solution. IMO.

    1. fine principal-->fine principle. But you knew that. Don't know if my fingers or autocorrect are at fault.

    1. If one starts counting (and I think it is fair) from HRC's period as co-president beginning in 1993, that was 27 years ago.

      Bernie was elected to the House in 1990, 26 years ago--but I think he gets a pass because he was little known outside Vermont until this past year. And with all due respect to the Green Mountain State, if it were a city it would be about 28th in population in the US. So the argument might be made that his 14-year clock didn't start until 2015. I don't think running a second time is a realistic option given his age, more's the pity. But he can help set up some other contenders.

    3. There just has to be prominent places in the next Democratic administration for both of them. I really like them both and want to see them progress to higher offices. As for the weaker sex, what do you think of Sherrod Brown?

    4. LOL Alan. That's what I love about you. You're not too proud to call it like it is.
