Return of the Draft?

So I'm doing some work late in the office one evening last week, and something came through my fax which caught my eye. Caught both of them in fact. Devoid of any fax header, it was a press release of sorts captioned "THE DRAFT DOROTHY BROWN FOR MAYOR COMMITTEE BEGINS FORMATION". The fax touts the Clerk of the Court's "results oriented management and integrity", which seems to not so subtly infer that it is believed that these qualities are presently missing from City Hall.

Through a incredibly odd coincidence, I happen to recognize the contact person listed on the 'release' as belonging to a local consulting outfit. But just who is having them do this is beyond me, although you could formulate a couple good guesses relatively quickly. The only other info was a website (which consists of one page with no additional information on it) and a phone number (which I wasn't going to bother to call).

Now as the only other Louisiana-born local elected official, I like Dorothy; but this thing is just odd on a lot of fronts. It will be curious to see how she responds when she is inevitably asked about this issue, which may be just why it was sent out to start with.

Circuit Clerk Dorothy Brown V. Congressman Luis Gutierrez

Any predictions for 2007?

Also what implications does this have for another term for Mayor Daley and what about Congressman Jackson?

I think that Gutierrez is in, than Daley is out. If I remember correctly they are key allies. I think that no matter whose in this race if Brown is in, that could be disastorus for Jackson as it could split the black vote...

Whats everyones thoughts?

They are NOT key allies but have reached an uneasy truce. You are right though that two legitimate african-american candidates open the door for somebody else to step in. And add in a qualified latino as well and the door opens even wider for somebody else qualified. Helloooo John?

I am SO not taking the bait on this one at this time.

At this time? How about spitting the bait out: "I am not running against Mayor Daley."

I already said that some time ago. Nothing's changed.
