It’s not my first small presidential campaign contribution this year, however. I gave at least once and I think twice to Chris Dodd, in reward for individual good acts.
Other than that I’ve given small contributions in congressional races, including Cindy Sheehan and, less whimsically, Donna Edwards, who then successfully ‘primaried out’ a bad Democrat—who then, like a Republican, resigned to become a lobbyist! So there will be a special election later this month. I think I gave to one other Democratic primary challenger on an incumbent bad Democrat, at the same time as Edwards.
Also I rewarded the DNC with a small contribution when it adopted Obama’s funding rules. At least I think I did; I’ve been a little muddleheaded lately due to tornado weather.
