Shameless promotion

Go over to xoverboard.com. Go over there every day, in fact. But check out this post. Unfortunately, there haven't been many good Democrats to vote for recently. Take a look at the 2002 elections. Roger Moe? Sorry, not a chance. Buck Humphrey for Secretary of State? Not really. Carol Johnson for Auditor? Who is that?

The only person we have is Attorney General Mike Hatch, and that's not something to be ashamed of, but he's just one person. The Democrats had the chance to nominate Judi Dutcher for governor, a moderate woman who I am sure would have greatly expanded the party and beaten Pawlenty. But for some strange reason, they passed. They also had the chance to go with Greg Gray for auditor, who would have done a great job, but instead the people went with the bland Minnesota-sounding name. It's a pity.

The legislative leaders are very good (Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson and House Minority Leader Matt Entenza). There are also very good up-and-coming DFLers in the legislature too, like Rep. Joe Atkins from Inver Grove Heights and Senator Scott Dibble from Minneapolis, just to name a couple. Hopefully, some of these people will step up and make an impact in some statewide races.
