The 26 year old has the support of a number of powerful local figures and organizations. A politician is not paid for ideas, a politician is paid for his ability to get things done. Ideas are worthless. Opinions are nothing.

your point?

My point is that having ideas without any plan, support, or ability to implement them doesn't qualify one for office. In an election, a politician isn't selling experience or ideas. The 26 year old may lack experience in an elected office, but he has the open support of state and local official and thus, the ability to implement his ideas. In addition to that, he has the financial and political support of his party behind him and I think that you grossly overestimate the impact and influence that the internet has over real-world issues.

Your idea for running seems to hinge on the notion that Ravenstahl isn't any more qualified than you are, and it simply isn't true. You asked about feasibility of running and your electability, and I'm answering you.

ok, thanx. That's what I was looking for, yes.

for the record, I do not grossly overestimate the impact and influence. If anything I underestimate it. Lets be clear on something. I don't necessarilly believe I can win. For one thing, I adamantly refuse to be a democrat or a republican pretty much ever. And the chances of a non-Democrat winning the mayoral office here are pretty much nil. Even for someone more popular than me. But that doesn't mean that its not worth trying. So that's what we're exploring here. Whether or not its worth the attempt.

Thanx for the input though.
