Westsiders have long been at the forefront of many progressive movements whether it is for women's rights or civil rights. While our temperament may have mellowed a bit since our "People's Republic" days as apartment prices and average income levels have soared we are still home to many of the most liberal elected officials in the country and we love them. It's a community that might take someone like Obama under its wing. He might be getting the buzz, but I think that my neighbors have realized Hillary's lifelong record of progressive action and results is one we admire and that she'll work to achieve what we need, a government that works for people. In addition to my button sales someone else was getting hundreds of people to put Hillary stickers on their backs. So I'll take button sales over buzz to find out where the heart of a neighborhood is.
