How Far Can Politicians Go to Get The Jewish Vote?


American politicians have started announcing their Run for the 2016 Presidential Election (Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton) and others are expected to announce soon (List). These announcements also mean that the pandering to Jewish voters will officially begin (although Mrs Clinton has started for quite a while). But how low will they be willing to go?

INTRUDERS


By Stephen Cheney


We try not to intrude
Into each other’s domains,
But we are born to intrude.
We try not to look into darkness,
Into mystery more than our own,
But we are the eyes in the dark.

Sensing mysteries,
Breathing rhythm,
Our footprints pressed to sand;
Washed away by the tide of time,
Swept into a forgottenness,
By the changing churning wind.
