All you have to know is , "would I vote for a Viking stadium". If the answer is no, then they have my vote. Schiff, Hodges, and even Winton, and I'm a liberal. Cherryhomes and Samuels can take a walk.

It will be easy for the DFL to select. All they have to do is find out how many multi-million dollar water fountains they plan to build and pick the candidate with the highest number. Oh, and the number of streetcar lines.

"Five strong candidates"? Geez, given that headline I would have thought this was an opinion piece. The journalistic integrity at the Strib is non-existent.

Whichever dem promises the most free stuff to the uninformed voter will be the "chosen one" for the party!

"Oh, and the number of streetcar lines." Yeesh, we don't even have one line and people complain about them already. The neighborhoods in Minneapolis were built around streetcars and the majority of residents of Minneapolis didn't want them tore out in the first place. Nicolett/Central is prefect for line. Streetcars have done wonders for development in Portland (esp the Pearl District) and could do the same here.

"Whichever dem promises the most free stuff to the uninformed voter will be the "chosen one" for the party!" If you mean free stuff like libraries, parks, bike trails, streets, police, fire response etc. you can count me in!!

Not a moderate among the group. Maybe the GOP or Independents can come up with some good candidates
