Steve Rowe

I had a great talk today with Maine's Attorney General Steven Rowe. He spoke at a Democratic event and emphasized the importance of building the "bottom of the pyramid" and energizing progressive activism. His words and attitude really impressed me.

Afterwards, I told him flat out that he should run for Senate. I agreed with him that he probably didn't stand much of a chance against Snowe and her machine, but a campaign doesn't have to just be about winning.

Maine could use a statewide campaign with a focus on laying the groundwork for that pyramid. The current strength of the Democratic Party here may hide some future weaknesses. For instance, the exit polls from 2004 show George Bush winning the under-40 vote in Maine.

I was the youngest person at the event today, and the Attorney General agreed with me that that's a problem.

I've heard Rowe's name mentioned as a candidate for another statewide political office in 2006. And he sure is sounding like someone who intends to move up the ladder.

I am a bit troubled by AG Rowe's inaction on the Dennis Dechaine case. Check out http://www.trialanderrordennis.org for more on this

I am also troubled with Rowe's refusal to step to the plate on the Dechaine issue. Maybe he will do something about the out-of-line DNA law we have in this State. I feel he would gain the respect of many voters in the state with such a move.

Steve Rowe is a good man. Otherwise the nuts in Maine would have Dennis Dechaine out raping and killing little girls.

Tim- you are the nut who refuses to listen to both sides. Take a good look into the mirror and see the nut.

Tim-

You should worry about the nuts between your legs. I doubt that you have any.
