You are so wrong. Mr. Dayton was a school teacher. He has been elected to state office and national office before. His foundations employ hundreds and are well known for helping those that are in need.<quoted text>
His family created something decades ago and now mark deserves a legacy vote? You sound like another doltish, koolaid drinking liberal; america the great! The guy has never held a real job in his life, has a chemical dependancy issues, was named the worst senator by newsweek...and now he's suddenly been transformed into a suitable candidate for govenor? Truly, what color is the sky in your world?
As for the personal issues you bring up, I think this shows his character and ability to overcome adversity. He has faced down the demons and still is charging ahead full steam.
By far, Mr. Dayton is the most intelligent and articulate person running for Governor. And the most deserving because he cares for all Minnesotans, not just the ones that are rich.
I want my Governor to make sure the rich are not able to continue stealing money from the poor, and he needs to take care of those in need. Mr. Dayton is the only one committed to that task.
