  1. A good example of the challenge Democrats face in the midterms is the McCaskell/Hawley matchup. Claire is the real deal, smart, hardworking, experienced. Before the senate she was a hard-working and effective state auditor. However, she is also an older woman. I just wonder how many citizens see voting as a celebrity contest? I think it’s many but I hope I’m wrong.

    • Given the average age of our senators and representatives, I wouldn’t expect age to be an issue. And this strikes me as the perfect time for a woman to be running. As for the celebrity thing, I worried about that when Trump was elected; I worried even more when there was talk of Oprah running. It’s painfully apparent that simply being a celebrity does not make you fit to be president!

  2. I keep wondering how long it will take for voters to realize that the rivalry that exists exclusively between the two major parties is why none of the promises they make ever come to fruition. Personally, I won’t waste my vote on either of them.

    • And I keep wondering when we’ll get back to a time when, despite party rivalry, our elected representatives put country ahead of party or personal gain. Yes, I really am naive enough and idealistic enough to think that used to be the case.
