2004 – Please Not Al

SHARPTON CANDIDACY GIVING DEMS THE JITTERS

“If Sharpton does well, it’s going to be hard to deny him a place at the podium at the Democratic convention – in prime time,” frets a party strategist already worrying about how heartland America will react.

I just cannot see how anyone would vote for Al Sharpton. I could see why Jesse Jackson of the 80’s had good support. But Sharpton, jeeze. While I’m not a Democrat, I would support John Kerry or if, former Virginia governor, Doug Wilder launched another campaign he would be a good choice. But damn…..if I were the Republicans I’d be cheering at this announcement.

I might just move to France (or warm Bermuda) if Al is elected president.
