A Day in the Life of De La Fuente-Article from East Bay Express

Very interesting and revealing article from East Bay Express by Will Harper. Harper goes one-on-one with IDLF, and hits many of the important points regarding IDLF: the straight-ahead/no B.S. attitude, his blemished history, his son's rape charges, and his stance on important city issues in comparison to Dellums and Nadel. I have to agree Harper, De La Fuente is by and far the most provacative candidate. Long, but great read. I hope the East Bay Express can do an article on each of the candidates.

Oh, to be in that courtroom when IDLF told that attorney to go F___ himself! (I wonder of Court TV or someone else has a video of that somewhere?)

Well, it looks like Dellums will probably be the next Mayor of Oakland, and perhaps that's not as bad for the A's as I would have thought. Remember, this dude has experience working with the likes of Tip O'Neill and Newt Gingrich. Surely, he can handle Lew Wolff and Bud Selig. He'll also bring a certain degree of class and clout to the mayor's office not unlike Willie Brown did in SF.

The problem with Dellums is that he's a legislator, not an executive. When he talks about bringing 100K people to downtown Oakland, it may be either a bold vision, or a naive fantasy. Jerry Brown at least had the leadership skills to bring interest groups together.

IDLF's strength is that he's street-wise and No-Nonsense, which may define Oakland's character, but is that what the city really needs right now? As for Nancy Nadel, she's probably a great gal ought to run for mayor in a city like Fremont.

But what do I know? I live in Fresno, and we're stuck with Alan Autry, who's only claim to fame is playing "Bubba" on "Heat Of The Night"

I DO know this: We're I an Oakland resident, De La Fuente would get my vote by default, if only to give him the opportunity to tell Bud Selig to go F___ himself!
