brightontop So let me get this straight. You always dreamed of being a snappy writer, doing your column, having people admire and follow you. And sending a mailer that just has other people's a bunch of people who probably don't read your stuff and who find you tiresome...THAT is what you settled for? Really? Sad.

Jennifer Granholm was Michigan governor from 2003-2011. During that time, the state experienced major economic decline, an unemployment level higher than the national average, and population loss. She was replaced by Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican elected in 2010. Michigan has since begun to see its greatest level of economic development in a decade. No one misses her.

Of course, failed economic policies weren't any kind of dealbreaker for a speaking slot at the DNC; in fact, one might say they were a requirement. And all's the better that her delivery is in the style of Howard...
