And while I'm making unreasonable demands, how about a guy who can pronounce the word nuclear.
Ha! That one made me laugh. Thanks! And might be able to beat Hillary for the Dem ticket?
There was a NY Times Magazine piece a few months ago on former VA Gov. Mark Warner. He was a very popular governor of a moderate but Republican-dominated southern state, and he was able to deliver bad budgetary news in a way that got the legislature to agree to make sacrifices to fix it (including a fairer tax system) and the public to support it. He has substantial personal wealth from co-founding Nextel and running a large technology venture capital firm, and may be able to tap into technology money from other supporters which would be vital if Hillary sucks up all the traditional Democratic fundraising sources. (It was scary how the article portrayed a few big money-raisers as determining the fate of the nominees; if they all go for the same person, it's extremely hard for anyone else to mount a serious challenge and really makes the primaries meaningless.) Yeah, I know a lot of people have never heard of him, but Bill Clinton was an unknown when he announced.
But to keep the thread on track . . . maybe sending it to a political candidate who might change things would be a good idea. I like all of the proposals from the original post, but I don't know what organization would be the best way to promote them. Common Cause
strongly supports public campaign financing and has worked with success stories in several states, but there hasn't seemed to have been much progress with Congressional elections so far.
