Behold, an "issues" video from Ward Cammack, the unknown rich guy running for governor as a Democrat. Herein, he speaks his mind on the economy, health care and schools. He's obviously trying to cast himself as the can-do "ideas" candidate in the mold of Phil Bredesen. His early slogan: "Propositions not Oppositions." That's catchy.
The problem is, his so-called ideas are pretty thin stuff. Here's one of his big ones on the economy: We need to see about landing some more energy-related jobs. He thinks it would be nice if everybody could afford health insurance, but damn the state government can't go bankrupt paying for it. Give him credit, though. He's very good at scrunching up his forehead when he's talking and that makes him look really thoughtful.
