That is why I will most likely be through with the democratic party
ummm... When were you ever FOR the Democratic Party here?
Regarding Debbie: I'll just address her personality for a moment. You can tackle her political tactics, but I hope as a different matter, and separate the two. I wish you could do the same with Hillary, and be less personal in your gratuitous attacks on her.
I once attended a Dolphins Democrats dinner here. That's the LGBT Democratic organization for South Florida. Debbie was the featured speaker. She drove up herself in a rather nondescript SUV, no luxury model, along with a young school-age daughter.
No entourage, no fanfare, an event valet took her car like the rest of us. Just the 2 of them, whom I both met and spoke with. Obviously not with the pre-teen daughter much, other than a polite hello. Debbie is not the typical celebrity politician, very unpretentious.
She's also spoken at our June Stonewall parade, and ridden in it. How many Republican politicians do that?
At one parade I snagged her at the parade's end, as she exited her bannered convertible. And persuaded her to come with me into a nearby Italian restaurant. I also collected the County Sheriff, standing around on the sidewalk in his uniform after his own parade appearance, our most important local political figure, as well as the Wilton Manors Mayor and his wife.
We all sat down together. The restaurant owner, a 1st-generation Italian immigrant, was beside himself. Debbie is very charming, and I don't think politics was spoken about at all, but I quickly had to excuse myself, because I had a guest with me.
I'd been escorting a visiting out-of-town RJer during the Wilton Manors festival & parade, so I asked Debbie if I could take her picture with him. She graciously agreed without question. I had previously posted that pic here at the time. I also took his picture with the Sheriff, since he was looking at doing law enforcement in another Florida city, and the connection might help him.
