Being Local is Being Best (and yea…Super Tuesday too)

7 Mar

, U.S. Congresswoman (D-Ohio, 1983-present)

Yes, there was that blowout in Super Tuesday by Romney.  Oh, I lied.  I mean barely winning a state by 1% in which he outspent his main competitor (Santorum) 5-1, obviously winning his home state (MA) and could-be home state (VT), mano-a-mano match against Ron Paul (just 60/40), and that state on the other side of the country (Alaska).  Santorum and Gingrich getting the other four (Tennessee, Oklahoma, ND and Georgia, respectively).  Basically, I’d like to thank the GOP for making all these early contests proportional =D

I know that politicians can be very egotistical.  Again, I lie.  I know that politicians are egotistical.  But the lengths to which Dennis Kucinich tries to keep his job by first searching for a seat in a newly formed seat in Washington and then losing by a lot to Kaptur shows that I’m glad that those people in the district voted for who represented them best and not who wanted to represent themselves.  I hope that I can do that in whatever position, and I’ll endeavor to do that in the future.
