The Governor thing I get. There's probably dozens of women waiting to accuse him of something.

But leaving the party??? That's a big surprise.

I'm wondering if, perhaps, they're trying to distance themselves from the "democratic" brand and stigma, and forming something new... a "Bernie Sanders" move or something, in the hopes that the sheeples will flock over?

We need to watch this carefully!

Please, I hope he does--it would split mainly Democratic votes.

Run, John, run!

He has a chance of getting in but he has to do something to outrun the hillary and barack fundraisers he had at his house. I think he would get decent bipartisen support but hes got some splainin’ to do. Just running as pro-weed, id say he could win.

I read somewhere, possibly on this forum, that he was anti-gun. I don't know if this is true or not, so it bears looking into. Or, perhaps he'll just blow with the wind.

News quoted him as saying that he figured out that during his push to legalize medical marijuana that all politicians were the same.

That they were only interested in one thing, to get re-elected.

That's why he said he decided to quit the political parties.

He may be a lot of things, but I never thought he was this naïve. I gotta believe its something else.

His real reasons for leaving:

1. Neither political party will do exactly as I want them to do even though I am always right on everything.

2. Politics is too much boring, poorly paid (in big lawyer terms) work. Not as much fun as pontificating about pot, running a 1 issue campaign for medical marijuana, or making commercials for my law firm.

All that, and he was't going to win the nomination, let alone the actual governorship. It's real easy to quit when you're going to lose.
