From A DistanceNovember 11, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
As the TNDP bus keeps rolling on, I feel the need to tell you that due to the recent election and how Tennessee fared, that this is just one of many things that are going to be happening in the coming months.
Everyone has something up their sleeve, and they should quite frankly. Political posturing aside, in stategery (to quote our president or Will Ferrell depending where you stand on these things) politicians and their supporters are looking at where they need to be, how they need to get there and who has their back.
That’s the key, you know. Whose behind you and what are they doing? Are they on your side or are they looking to leap frog over you.
I think you will find all of the political divisions of the state (and I’m speaking geographically here) are eyeballing their position on the battlefield.
Politics is sort of like war in some ways.
I’m watching from a distance.
My only suggestion for state democrats involved in this game is to avoid getting a new Nashville insider into the TNDP. The office needs someone who thinks outside the box, understands new media and is willing to look at the state as a whole.
Nashville is the capitol. But then again, it’s voters all across the state that set the rules and the new staff needs to be mindful of that.
Now, as my political punditry has overtaken me, go look at this picture because it will make you feel good.
