State Sen. Joe Sam Queen forgot one of the most important lessons any good leader learns - if you want to make something happen, it's a really good idea to seek buy-in from those most directly affected.

"... those most directly affected"? Are you talking about the people that elected Mr Queen or the local bar association? I wonder if the editorial writer has ever spent any time around the CJSystem, or has a real grasp of local politics. This is nothing more than a political pissing contest to assert control over who makes decisions in that district. Most of the time, the interests of the people - even the interests of the opposition - are secondary to the power struggle. To me it is just another case of a few local mucky-mucks trying to show the people's representative that he can't do anything without their say.

What does Larry Leake say about it?

Did JoeSamQueen consult the KEY democrat 'leader' in WNC on this? Is it a collaborative effort of their shady kind?...jes wonderin'....course you wont be hearing Larry Leake speak about it, cause he operates in the shadows for his control...
