Democrats Abroad Global Primary Redux

Are you one of the 6 million voting-eligible Americans living abroad?  Here’s a short note to make sure any expats who read this blog are aware of the Democrats Abroad Global Primary, coming in early February in a country near you! 

Here’s an article about this new program.  There will be 22 delegates for expats at the Democratic National Convention.

You can register and vote online at the Democrats Abroad website.  At the end of this post, I’ve pasted a list of the polling places in Germany for those who want to vote in person.  Maybe later, I’ll post some thoughts about the candidates.

  1. It’s gotten pretty rancorous, but it’s hard to say. It’s needs must when it comes to picking a running mate. There have been a few rancorous combinations in the past. I don’t think Kennedy and Johnson were friendly in their primary, and George Herbert Walker Bush got in some good shots on Reagan in 1980 before Reagan tabbed him as his Veep.

    It’s very unlikely that Hilary would consent to being Obama’s running mate, but more possible that Obama would become Hilary’s. Edwards won’t be he running mate of either, I judge. That’s because he ran as Kerry’s VP lin 2004 and he won’t wish to get pigeonholed as a permanent #2. Another factor is that Kerry made some nasty comments about Edwards not loaylly contributing to the ticket in 2004 – I doubt Obama or Hilary wishes to name a disloyal Veep.
