Becky Lourey

Of course Becky Lourey has something very important to say about the war, and of course she has every right to express her opinion on it. I agree with her opinion. To me, that's not the issue. The issue is making the Iraq War the centerpiece of a campaign for governor. It's like somebody running for mayor and making abortion their number one issue, or a person running for governor and basing their campaign around the belief that they need a stop sign at the corner in their neighborhood. It's just the wrong office to be highlighting that issue.

But then again, I don't understand Becky Lourey much anyway. She has run for governor twice. She is running in the primary, where she is guaranteed to lose. I have few problems with her policies, but somebody like her is going to have a hard time getting elected governor. I always thought that the best place for people who are very liberal, the Loureys and the Paul Wellstones of the world, is in the legislature. That's where their policy expertise has the most impact. I probably wouldn't have supported Paul had he run for governor. Congress or our state legislature needs a couple Wellstones, but I don't think the government should be run by them.

If you support her politics, or Wellstone's for that matter, why shouldn't people like that be running the Government. We both know the Republicans run their ultra-right wingers for Executive positions. If you think a candidate can lead and has good politics, that's what we need in Executives.
