      It’s better because he’s in my city. I could vote for him if I chose to.Report

        Does he old a position on city council or is he just some dude running for Mayor?Report

        Note the “could” and “if” in North’s statement. It seems this ad hasn’t quite won him over yet.Report

        Well it’s a good add James but I dunno if it seals the deal for me. Plus the Minneapolis Mayoral vote system is not a first past the post but rather ranked preference system so he may be my #2 choice.

        ND: I know little to nothing about him except he’s DFL. Thus my hesitation.Report

    Space. Awesome.

    The icing on the cake — the candidate pointing at the camera — is genuinely authentic. That’s the real guy there. Whether you really think he’s a good choice to be the mayor of a major city or not is something else, but you do get a taste of the real guy.Report

        The guy appears to be trying to be a 40 or 50 something hipster.

        Meanwhile, I read on New York’s Daily Intel blog that Wesley Clark is now dating a 30-year old woman and going to the hottest clubs in the meat-packing district. His new girlfriend is younger than his son. I don’t know how I would react if one of my parents ended up dating someone my junior.Report

    I read somewhere that the women in the video is the guy’s girlfriend.

    Someone further speculated that the video is all “I’m a middle-aged guy with a good body who can still get younger girlfriends.”Report
