  •  DFL Legislature not effective (1+ / 0-)

    While it is great the DFL has all those seats, what did they do with them- bupkus.

    They could not override Pawlenty's vetos and pass a reasonable tax hike. Yes, Pawlenty is terrible to deal with, but what good is having the power without the ability to use it effectively?

    Also, As Collideascope notes, DFL Governor candidates have been terrible for the past 16-20 years. Not sure who is looking good now, but I think RT Rybak stands a good chance. I'd also like to see Steve Kelley back in the mix.
