Just a thought...REMATCH Gray vs. Fenty

I was having a discussion with a friend and somehow the question came up, "who would win in a rematch, Gray or Fenty?"  I must say I was one of the voters that helped oust Fenty in the 2010 election, however I think if he ran again I might consider giving him another chance.  Of course this is assuming my choices were Fenty and Gray.

Let me say I don't have anything against Gray.  I think he's doing a decent job, but he's not the best we've every had.  Personally, one of the reasons I didn't vote for Fenty was because I think he forgot which side his bread was buttered on.  I'm sure when you get in office its a whole other lever of "politicking" however you must not forget where you votes come from.  Before he was Mayor, Fenty was always in the neighborhoods and I think he got so caught up in the upper-level management of running the city that he neglected the people that put him in the position.   

According to other news outlets, thus far Fenty has been mum about a possible rematch in 2014.  I think Fenty still has many supporters and unless Gray steps it up big time, if Fenty decides to throw his hat in the rings, Gray will have a tough fight on his hands.


  1. What would really be sad is if "Gray vs. Fenty" was the only option in 2014. Maybe Barry will run and make it REALLY interesting!?

  2. I like Barry but do you think Barry has what it takes to be effective with the real players (i.e. Chamber of Commerce, Developers, Congress, etc.)? We know he's for the people but is that enough in this new era of DC?
