I Want the People!

Jan
11

The New York Times discusses the lack of enthusiasm among performers to appear at Trump's inauguration (link). Trump pretends not to care:

Mr. Trump has maintained that he does not want A-List celebrities at his inauguration. (“I want the PEOPLE!” he tweeted in December.)

Trump wants the "PEOPLE!"? Well, maybe he should go here...

She ended up around 24,000 votes behind Trump in the state.

I guess the question regarding Hillary is whether she'll generate the kind of enthusiasm that will get people to the polls to vote for her. "Ready for Hillary" just isn't good enough. "Fired Up for Hillary" is what's needed.

You know Paul Krugman's feeling well when he puts up a piece extolling the virtues of the Obama Administration calling it the "Big Deal". Here's Steve Benen's comment on it.
