Goodbye Tom

I have been so busy with work lately that I just barely looked at the news for the first time this week. I was disappointed to learn that Tom Vilsack has abandoned his bid for the presidency. Tom was the first candidate to enter the race and the first that I endorsed. His reason for leaving – too much focus on money in the campaigning. With a much lower profile than many of the other candidates, he could not raise enough money to fund the kind of accelerated campaigns we are seeing.

I hope that, if Tom is willing, some candidate will be wise enough to choose him as a running mate. In fact, I think candidates from outside his party would do well to consider him. (I know I’m going out on a limb there, but politics as usual is not helping us.)
