Kossackian Savoir-Vivre

Old Kossack (excerpt from the Pocket Dictionary of the Kossacks, under development)

Suppose you are a Democrat politician and you would like to know how to improve your appeal to the Kossacks. There are some simple rules based on Kossackian savoir-vivre. An example is worth thousand words, and one can find a good bunch of examples at the Yearly Kos that took part in Las Vegas.

So here are some do’s and don’ts:

  • Former Governor of Virginia, Mark Warner, gave a party Friday night at the Stratosphere Casino and Hotel. Yes, this is a good example.

  • Retired General Wesley Clark came with the idea of free food and drink. He implemented this idea by giving a well-attended party. Yes, this is also a good example.

  • New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson started his Friday with a breakfast attended by some tens of Kossacks. Yes, good example.

  • Massachusetts Senator John Kerry did not attend the symposium but sponsored a gathering at the Bellagio Hotel. Yes, it’s good too.

  • New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was an absentee. Well, this is a no-no.
