    I'd have to know more about the rest of his platform before I'd consider voting for him, but we do need more politicians prepared to do this wort of thing!

    (In fact, if John Boehner would go do this for a week, we might get some useful things done! :winkicon_smile.gif

    I listened to him a few times on TV back when he was doling out the treasury to the banksters. I don't know yet how I feel about him. I'd have to study that. Obviously he's a super smart guy which I love and he's with us on social issues which I adore and he's kinda hot, which is, well, kinda hot.

    Even if this was just an advertising scheme, he's smart enough to have learned from it. Whether or not it sunk in would depend on his capacity for empathy which can be faked or mimicked so I've no way of knowing that. I tend to think most political types are merely power hungry so that's what you get to chose from but I'd hope there's some real people in there too. He might be one. Obviously he's the capacity to succeed in pretty much any endeavor he takes on. Seems a pretty powerful character in his own right.

    We had various similar "stunts", if you want to call them that, in Florida including walkin' Lawton

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawton_Chiles
    Chiles embarked upon a 1,003-mile, 91-day walk across Florida from Pensacola to Key West.


    and another guy I liked Bob Graham

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Graham
    ...trademark was to work a full, eight-hour day at various jobs which represented Florida's constituents. He began his "Workdays" in 1974, ... His jobs have included service as a police officer, busboy, railroad engineer, construction worker, fisherman, garbage man, factory worker, and teacher...


    I do prefer the politics of the Ds over the Rs generally but if it was between this R guy and the psueudo D guy Crist, I'd take this R over that D every time.

    It's a cheap show. They know they have a cushie bed to go back home to at the end of the week. Meaningless and demeaning.

    from this same article:
    "Dan Newman, a spokesman for Brown's campaign, said he was having difficulty reconciling Kashkari's "bizarre campaign stunt" with his assistance for big banks.

    "If one truly cared about the homeless and had $700 billion to spend, would he give it all to big banks and ignore families struggling to stay in their homes?"


    2bnaked, What makes you trust Kashkari now?
