This game is called "What I like About Your Candidate". The rules are simple, but I expect many MyDD readers may find it really challenging.*****UPDATE: Wow you guys, I am SO impressed!
I was expecting this thing to devolve into yet another food fight, but with one notable exception (you know who you are), everybody played the game wonderfully! As a reward, make yourselves your favorite dessert, and go watch "Heidi", or "Pollyanna", or your favorite sappy, feel-good movie.
And to the one person who just never seemed to figure out the rules, it's OK. I'm sure if you work very hard, you can one day say something nice about an adversary and really mean it. Remember: bunnies! rainbows! candy canes! ponies!********************
1) Just leave a comment describing one thing (or more!) that you like, admire, respect about your candidate's primary opponent - soon to be GE ally.
1a) You can also say something nice about the opponent's supporters if you want.
2) Try to avoid back handed compliments, such as "I admire candidate X's courageous yet losing battle against halitosis." Go for something real, from the heart.
3) If you can't say something nice, go spew your bile in some other diary.
4) Insults and snark about the media and Republicans are fine, but try to do it in the context of saying something nice about your primary opponent.
I'll go first, below the fold ...
The thing I most admire about Obama is his plan for more open government. He has some great ideas for soliciting and encouraging wide public input on policy initiatives.
See? It's not so hard is it? Now, you go ...
