I would not vote for Susan Bogni. At the forum on Saturday, she struck me as one who felt she was due the appointment by virtue of employment for the current commissioner. The only other political adroitness she seemed to possess was the ability to say Barack Obama's name, and if I remember correctly, she said she wanted to implement his vision in our corner of the worthld.
When did central planning become the mantra of our political age? She may be the most qualified candidate (though I didn't take that from the forum), but she fails to grasp a very simple concept in a representative democracy, that the country doesn't belong to its leaders, be they Barack Obama or Susan Bogni. I hate the concept of benevolent overlords, and I hate it when politicians (even more so, aspiring politicians) embrace it. Obama's tagline certainly did not aspire to such lunacy look to the right of Joe Biden and read what it says.
