Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 11/07/2022

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 11/07/2022

Well, tomorrow is the off-year election in the US, which I think is about the 59th. I don’t think anyone knows how it’s going to go, but I do know that 80% of House seats are uncontested, “safe” seats. That means only about 90 of the 435 seats will determine the majority and control of the House.

I also think that people in either party whose favored candidates lose will be somewhat crazed, and if their party suffers great loss their heads will explode. Once you lay claim to the higher moral ground, it’s tough to believe that you’ve been repudiated by others.

If I were elected to any office, the first thing I’d do would be to invite the opposition to take certain positions (from town administration to the President’s cabinet). I’d reach out and listen and demonstrate that I’m taking action on all good ideas and embracing diverse philosophies to the extent they can compromise and help people.

One thing I wouldn’t do is focus on my next election. I’d simply do the best I could in the time I’ve been given. If it were good enough and appealed to enough people, that should be pretty solid for reelection if I wanted it.

Not a very complex philosophy. It’s “do unto others” in a sense.

I hope your candidates and your beliefs do well on Tuesday and, if they do, that you’ll still accept the views of others. But I also hope that if they don’t you’ll also accept the views of others. And I hope you’ll vote, or your views aren’t all that relevant.

Jefferson and Adams had starkly different views and often quarreled, but they were friends for life. The country was far better and stronger because of the both of them.


A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation. —James Freeman Clarke

Popularity should be no scale for the election of politicians. If it would depend on popularity, Donald Duck and the Muppets would take seats in the Senate. —Orson Welles

Winning or losing of the election is less important than strengthening the country. —Indira Gandhi
