People are looking for political inspiration. If you are able to bring the energy of youth with a platform of intelligence you are going to get notice. And in a world of the internet and cable notice is as important as money.

Well, insurance companies have about 400 mil for conservatives. Not exactly a fair fight there.

Do you really think that people would be interested in electing someone who isn't even 25 yet? The guy I work with says that I should start by helping out the community.

Really? do you have a source for that....because all I can find is this...

http://thinkprogress.org/2010/08/27/...ps-400-millio/


So you are telling me that the RNC will have 800 million to spend? damn...

Youth is energy. Your age won't matter if you have the ideas to back them out - substance to match your style.

Your youth is more likely to earn you a spot in the paper or TV - it's an instant story. Take advantage of it. Use it to gain college volunteers - the most useful volunteers you can have.

Would building a resume of community achievement help? Absolutely. That's was a big incentive for my working on oil clean up. But people aren't afraid of electing young politicians. We have a special place in our hearts for them.

Yes, thats where I got that info. Is that source not enough for you? And where did you get the 800 figure?

Well, because ... you said "insurance companies" so from reading your post, it was only "insurance companies" that gave the 400 million......so I just added that to the 400 million from other areas in the source I found....hence 800 million......

Quote:
– An unnamed health insurance industry coalition has pledged to spend $20 million
That's not exactly 88 million or 400 million.... so I was kind of confused....


I'm sure I could find all of the groups that have given to the DNC....and apparently there are a few more because they have gained more money overall than the RNC...


But that wasn't really my point....my point was, looks like the unions are going to put up a last minute fight for the win....

Now, I do believe somewhere that when its all said and done, if all the donations were calculated the Republicans might come out a little on top because A LOT of groups and individuals have been giving to specific campaigns and not to the RNC. But, I saw that on the news, and have not been able to find a source for specifics.

That's surprising.......I'm hearing Rahm Emmanuel.

So he's been mayor since Elder Bush was in office. Wasn't his father mayor before that?

I believe so. And yeah, Rahm is the most high profile possibility.

If Rahm runs for Chicago mayor, it would hurt Obama.

I think Rahm may be the only person in that administration that knows how to tie their own shoelaces.

By the time The President awakes from his sleep, Moore will have eaten all of the food in the White House, that includes those not yet processed in the White House kitchen. So it would not be a good idea for that reason.
