Stuff like this is why I hope he doesn’t run yet. Al Sharpton? Seriously? What kind of horribly bad judgement do you have to have to think you need to do this? I get it, sort of, if he’s already part of your extended network from a lifetime of political work. But if you’re this new? Al Sharpton?
You don’t need to do this. And if you think you do, then you’re not ready for the big time. Sharpton has no constituency, nor will he provide useful information. It’s a pointless act of self-harm to meet with him.
