    One of Jesse’s great lines was after he won the Governor race. He told everyone at his inauguration party, “We wasted them with our wasted votes!” I loved that. We are continually told third party votes are wasted, but all those “wasted” votes elected a fresh, new, out of the box Governor of Minnesota. Rock on!
