Five years ago…

…on Upper Left.

Here We Go!

With a thirty-some year track record as a Democratic Party consultant, candidate and activist, there's no way I'm going to claim to be 'fair and balanced.' Nope, Upper Left will be proudly partisan. I was born and raised in a New Deal Democratic home, and time came to choose a candidate on my own, I got Clean For Gene back in 1968. In 1972, I came home from Vietnam and went to work for George McGovern. In the intervening years, I've worked with and for dozens of Democrats running for everything from small town city councils to POTUS. Now I've got a spot to spout off what I think I've learned and what I think is right and wrong on the current political scene. I hope to offer a regional focus, too, from my vantage point in the suburbs of Seattle (close enough to town to proudly claim Jim McDermott as my personal Congresscritter). Now I just have to figure out the functional side of this thing...
Yep, it's been that long. Five years, over 280 thousand visits and, with this one, 7106 posts. Most of those are mine, but I'd be remiss without extending thanks to Carl, Darryl, Diane and Deej for stepping in at various times for various reasons. Thanks, too, to all y'all who've left any of the 6,617 comments (honorable mention to pal o' Upper Left Terry Parkhurst). And to all y'all who've ever dropped by, linked up or otherwise been a part of this ride. I'm still having fun and looking forward to the next five.

Still working on the functional side of this thing...
