I told Holly that when Iowa caucus time
had come around I had been curious about what their Greens had decided
and was unable to find anything. I asked Holly what happened. She said
that in Iowa going to the Major Party caucuses is a huge thing, and the
Greens probably can't compete for face time at this time. She said they
are still thinking about how to deal with that.
That key is on the sweater of a woman
that didn't want her picture taken, but did want to represent the
Palestinian right of return.
Earlier I'd been complaining about how
bad Mexican food made by Russians in Chicago is. They just didn't get
it about how that food should be. Somebody had responded by telling me
that when you're in Chicago the thing to eat is deep dish pizza. I had
that with some friends, and it was very good. On the way back to the
evening party we passed this office, and Cameron suggested I take a
picture of it. Seeing an architect bragging about being green was a
nice sight, and a reminder that we really are part of a movement that
spans many realms.
People were still relaxing when I got
back, talking about this or that. Mitch/Midge talked about running for
Senator in Missouri as a Republican. She also had lots of code pink
stories of getting into the media with Medea, fighting the public
Jesse Johnson said
that he is going back to West Virginia to run for Governor as the
Mountain Party Candidate.
I was leaving when I saw that Julie was interviewing Rosa Clemente in
the hall. I stopped to listen for a while. Rosa mentioned that since
giving her acceptance speech live on CSPAN, her website had been
getting five thousand hits an hour. After the camera stopped recording
there was a steady stream of other people that wanted to shake her
hand, ask questions, and so forth.
