Good job coordinating your efforts, guys.
**** This response to this same comment was also posted in another thread. ****

Look ... I did communicate with Jim after getting word the NC did a non-endorse me again. He was somewhat noncommittal. I only suspected he might be a petition candidate because he was in prior years. In any event, I did not know that Tom Herget would also be a petition candidate.

The SoA is a dark hole with respect to sharing information with either the potential candidates or the members in this matter in advance or even during the process.

Coordination is not a realistic possibility nor should it be a necessity. If the SoA would allow its members to make nominations with respect to any candidates of their desire, "coordination" to, effectively, beat the system would not be necessary as vote splitting would not be an issue.

I petitioned for Jim Glickman, because I believe he has the best chance of the 3 of winning the presidential election.

Can you remind me what the final results were? I can't remember whether Jim ended up within shouting distance, or not.

I'm not sure if Jim and Tom want to effect change or just be president. I would have thought after last year's fiasco, they would have been listening to Truman's wise words.

On the other hand, one could also argue that Jim has had 2 shots and lost. At what point does it make sense to give somebody else their shot (assuming you think they would be a good choice in any event)?

For the record, I like all 3 guys (at least from my minor exposures to Tom H). I wonder what Tom H's story is here.

I will once again vote, and encourage coworkers to do the same. Good luck to these candidates!

What's the highest number of times an endorsed candidate has appeared on a SOA ballot before getting elected?

And this one, too.

I also would like to know what Tom H is telling folks on his contact list about his candidacy.
