I first heard about Al running for Senate from Fitzy, when we were in Seattle. Our friends Lance and Jodi, from Duluth, sent him an email with this photo: their baby, Myla, posing with Al in a spin on the "politician with baby photo op." Fucking brilliant. Don't you love her expression? She's all business when it comes to being a Blue State Baby.
Also: watch this. it's 8 minutes, and it's great. Using FDR's "freedom from fear" has never been so needed, now. I love you, Al!
