He and his crew are disasters, and as much as I detest government bureaucrats, the status quo is better than anything Dellums has up his sleeve.
I was probably the only person watching the Democratic debate in South Carolina where Hillary mentioned that Dellums was working on "Green Collar" jobs in Oakland. Nevermind that the "Green Corridor" concept seems pretty absurd on its face. I just thought it was funny that she was congratulating Dellums for anything. Maybe this means she'd be an absentee president and run the government from Beijing or Antarctica.
Several of the things Chip Johnson says in the article are worthy of note. They echo some of my own sentiments:
And it is downright uncomfortable for the locals to see him presented as a savior for the nation's urban ills when his own city is suffering so badly from rampaging crime....
... it would appear as if Dellums' commitment to the Clinton campaign is stronger than his desire to provide leadership ... for the city....
He's restating the obvious, but it's nice to see it in print.
But then, oh dear reader, comes my favorite piece from the article:
There's talk about Dellums being a front-runner for a White House Cabinet post if Clinton wins in November....
Johnson goes on to say it's unlikely, but I wouldn't be so sure. I think it's pretty clear Ron likes the East Coast. My dream-come-true would be to see him as head of FEMA. Well, actually, that's not a very nice thing to say, as it would almost certainly doom people in disaster areas.
But it's a funny thought. Ron Dellums coming to rescue me from a flood? I'd probably rather drown.
I was thinking about voting Republican this time, as we may actually get a fairly moderate candidate. But this might tip me over into a Hillary supporter.
