Richmond Crusade for Voters Forum: Mixed Bag at Best for the Most Part…

My take on the Richmond Crusade for Voters forum Wednesday evening – it was a mixed bag at best.

My Take on the Inauguration

I am perhaps more than anything a student of politics and ideas.  Since that fateful Democratic primary election for governor of Florida so many years ago (1966 I think) I have been fascinated with elections and strategy and ideas.  And this 2016 election cycle was the best yet. Not that I do not have strong […]

I carefully with expectation awaited the results of the special elections.
