  •  I remember in the late 70s (5+ / 0-)

    Our congressman came to talk to our high school government class.  Not the whole school, not even the all the seniors, just a class of about 30 students.  I can't imagine many reps doing that now.  

    It's why I still admire Leon Panetta to this day.

      for his twitters and his bizarre statements,

      he met for a half-hour with a bunch of 15 & 16yo's from iowa who were visiting washington dc via a bus.

      and he sent one of his kids to state university.

      Garamendi came just a few months ago to a program at the alternative high school in Davis (a pretty small operation). It was on political issues of some sort. One of the kids who had presented was at our gathering. Garamendi remembered her AND the subject of her presentation.

    •  i can tell you why that happened (0+ / 0-)

      18 year olds had just recently gotten the right to vote a few years earlier and everyone was reaching out to them

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
