Maybe there is some there there

Rob Humenik attended a DHA Downtown Forum Lunch recently which featured Mayoral candidate Michael "Boy Wonder" Berry as the speaker. Despite being a card-carrying member of the Heights Area Axis of Left-Leaning Bloggers, Rob came away with the impression that Berry is a credible candidate, which is more than certain other bloggers (that would be me and Kevin) have given him credit for.

I still think that Berry will be buried (sorry) by the Sanchez-supporting conservative establishment, but as always, I'm just a goofball with a domain and an opinion, so I could certainly be wrong. Read Rob's piece and decide for yourself.

Rob Humenik's account just brings to mind what is so frustrating to me about Berry -- and that's the potential that I think he's throwing away. He's obviously earnest, cares about the city, seems to understand the need for this city's mayor to appeal across partisan and ethnic lines, and is sensible in many ways (and I say that despite making fun of him quite often! *smile*). So why not spend a couple more years on council solving real problems and gaining useful experience in municipal government, and THEN make the run?

Oh wait, but he IS a Republican, and we ARE the Stupid Party. Question answered. :)
