A Blogger's Opinion of the Upcoming Mayoral Race

So, it seems we've all neglected the mayoral race here in San Diego as of late. So, as a service to the community at large, let us look at all of those running in this election! Yes, it is time for my take on the San Diego mayoral election of 2008!  Let's begin!

First off, we have Republican Gerald Robert "Jerry" Sanders , the current mayor of San Diego. He has fought an uphill battle, and has had to deal with a bankrupt city, trying to save San Diego's football team, and opposition on all sides.

Contrary to party lines, though, he did publicly support same-sex marriages in San Diego. For this simple fact, I commend the candidate highly. All in all, given the state the city was in when he began his emergency run of office, he's not done that bad a job.

I live in Chula Vista, so maybe what happens in the Leviathon to the north shouldn't matter that much, other than the rest of the county usually has to pay for its mistakes. Anyway, I was intrigued by your following statement: "Contrary to party lines, though, he did publicly support same-sex marriages in San Diego. For this simple fact, I commend the candidate highly." Are you commending him for supporting same-sex marriage or for positioning himself contrary to his party lines?

A little of both. I fully support any persons in love being able to marry. I \even support poly marriage, if the people all love each other. But then, I believe what goes on in a bedroom is none of our business, really.
