Mayor's Election: The Irony Should Not Be Lost
I'm posting this message while reading election results on the Internet. It's looking like Landrieu & Nagin are in a runoff, unless Forman's early numbers aren't a fluke.
I just thought I'd make the following comment, because I haven't heard a lot of people mentioning it. If people are talking about this already in New Orleans, I apologize (it's definitely not being discussed nationally).
For all this time, we talked about how things need to be "different." We can't have "business as usual" anymore. We need "new blood." We need to "send a message." So we get our chance and what happens?
We're on the verge of a runoff between the incumbent mayor and the son of a former mayor.
