LL received a pretty interesting email thread a minute ago from Vincent Orange, who lost the D.C. Council Chairman’s race to Kwame Brown and now wants to be Brown’s replacement as an at-large councilmember.
Orange (or someone using an email address Orange used during his campaign) wrote to D.C. Democratic State Committee members (who will get to choose Brown’s replacement) in response to an email from a resident who said he would be “very upset” if the committee “appointed a person that your constituents have rejected time and time again.”
Michael Brown was rejected several times and now he is an outstanding at-large Councilmember.
Rushern Baker was rejected several times and now he will be the Prince Georgia’s County Executive.
Abraham Lincoln was rejected so many times that it was unbelievable that he became President of the United States.
Vincent is a winner. He won as Ward 5 Councilmember twice; and he won as the Democratic National Committeeman. Each time in his elected position he has been extremely successful. The accomplishments and success are second to none; and are well documented.
In three months, when all the endorsements and money had been locked up, Vincent Orange walked away in the Chairman’s race with nearly 48,000 voters believing he should be Chairman.
Don’t be fooled. “Life’s battles don’t always go to the strong or fastest man, but soon or late the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.”
GOD is in charge! And he will deliver Vincent Orange when he is ready. Vincent Orange is a very blessed man and GOD is preparing him to serve mankind very well.
The beauty about democracy is that it boils down to the one person, one vote theory. The majority prevails. Michael Brown was rejected several times and now he is an outstanding at-large Councilmember.
Those Democratic State Committee members with smart phones are likely reading Orange’s email right now over free drinks at the Buddha Bar provided by one of Orange’s rivals, Jacque Patterson.
