1,000 words: the inaugural selfie

    • The Klobuchar for President campaign is off to a slow start.

        Give it a little time, I don’t believe she’s even been to Iowa since the presidential inauguration 🙂

      Ouch

    • MrE85

      I thought the gaffe was the purpose of the post, at first glance.

    Is seating for the inauguration for legislators based on… a lottery? who gets along? social media savvy?

    • MrE85

      With roughly 50 Dems not showing up, I’m pretty sure they put out the “Please Seat Yourself” signs. 😉

    I suppose her message is, “Look, we’re all in this together,” but I wonder if “Comity!” is the message most of her constituents want to see today. And, for herself, is this how she’d like to remember the occasion?

    • When you look at how Minnesota ALMOST went for Trump, her stressing the whole “work across the aisle” thing makes sense. I tend to think it will be most interesting to watch Democratic congresspeople in districts that were in close races to see how much they cave to the GOP in the next two years.

      I’d be interesting in knowing how much went into setting up the shot, though. She’s got Bernie, and she’s got McCain, the guy who’s suddenly a moderate Republican.

      • frightwig

        McCain was her partner in introducing the failed bill to allow importing prescription drugs from Canada, last week.

          John McCain’s word plus $4.00 will get you a latte at Starbucks.

      • Zachary

        Do any of the three serve on any committees together?

      • Rob

        God help us when McCain is seen as a moderate Republican.

        • BJ

          He always was a moderate Republican. Only when he ran for president did anyone say he was otherwise.

          • Al

            Man, that was such a disappointing veer to the extreme.

          • BJ

            Except it wasn’t. He didn’t “change” much (presidential and all campaigns are will make people change) at all. What happened in the left made it seem like he was extreme, he never was.

      • frightwig

        Today she tweeted a few photos of herself with a group from Minnesota at the Women’s March in DC, so she’s covered her bases.

    • rallysocks

      Why wouldn’t she like to be on record (if even socially) that she’s willing to work and play well with others? Seems grown up to me.

  • Rob

    Who’s the dude to Amy’s left?

  • Postal Customer

    No one in that photo will ever be president.

  • Eric

    I think Sen. Sanders is still a S-VT not a D.
