Yes, Clay's in a fighting mood!

I'm pretty sure the people did use our voice. Overwhelmingly, in 2008 & 2012. #DoYourJob

Another one!

.@SenateMajLdr would rather a nom from #Clinton or #Trump than moderate from @POTUS. Hillary shld scare the GOP. Trump shld SCARE us ALL.

I just had that same thought!  

He's realized the power of Social Media, specifically Twitter.  It really is amazing how far Twitter has come, and how much it can bring change whether personal (for example, his UPS or Volvo problems) or more professional (which is what I'd call these tweets today...but that's just me).

And to think, he once called Twitter "the devil."  LOL!

Well I got to listen to the last segment.  As usual he did good. He sounded extremely knowledgeable about his subject.  Shallow note wonder what he wore?

I missed the usage of "monolithic" but caught "obfuscate" right away.  He knows words and stuff.  (Unlike the guy who says he knows words who is running for president...)

Show proposal:  "Clay Aiken and Meghan McCain, Point - Counterpoint."  And there would be NO "Meghan, you ignorant slut."  *g*

Here's the full episode.  I'm watching now, Clay hasn't been on yet.  I'm about halfway through, so Clay is on at the end.

This is EVERYTHING. I can't wait to watch Merle Dandridge win the TV.

It leads to a post from Merle.  She's going to be on a show this summer produced by Oprah!
