I think my desk companion, Herbie, has gotten a big head.
Today, he announced he’s a candidate for president in 2016 running as a member of the Moose Party. His announced platform so far is “Peace, love and greens for everyone.” It might be hard to pin him down as to specifics on other issues as his mind seems to be on the fresh greens sprouting in our yard, although I did hear him mutter something about asking Luna (the cat) to serve as his vice-president.
Historically, there was a Bull Moose Party represented by Teddy Roosevelt in 1912 and they took a rather progressive attitude for the time. So, I expect Herbie might follow the same pattern. I guess we’ll just wait and see what develops, but I expect he’ll run a very low-budget campaign.
