A Fly in the Ointment?

Last week, I posted about the forward thinking effort of the DPG to identify one (1) candidate for the 10th Congressional District. The day of the Big Meeting has come and gone, and there has been no announcement regarding who was anointed. Perhaps the process is ongoing, and we will hear something soon. I hope so. Lots of us would like to support that candidate.

What I fear is that one or more candidates have allowed an ego much greater than their chances in this race to spoil this attempt at Democratic Sanity. Participation in this exercise would've had to be more or less voluntary. Folks had to willingly come to meet with the group and willingly agree to support the candidate deemed to have the best shot in the race. Could it be that one or more candidates decided not to play ball?

If that's what happened, lots of us would like to know whose gigantic ego spoiled this rather brilliant plan.

Let's hope that I'm just being impatient.
