I was up south this week and hear someone mention they were going to announce their candidancy as a DFLer for the MN House... which is great...but...here's the disturbing thing, they said they weren't prepared yet to speak to the issues because "I don't know what those will be. I need to sit down with my manager and decide".
I guess I'm naive but I want someone representing me who doesn't take a poll to determine which side of an issue they are going to fall out on. Or, even if ,they are going to address certain issues! I'll even go so far as to say, not speaking up has hurt our party. The only ones getting lower ratings than Bu$h is Congress as a whole!
Which brings me to ask, if someone has been saying they're running for a congressional seat for months because they think the issues haven't been addressed, then wouldn't you think they'd address them? Where?
