Of course, Biden isn’t saying anything that most every election analyst already hasn’t. You can make a pretty objective case that Clinton wasn’t a great candidate, given she lost an election she was expected to win to an opponent who became the most unpopular president-elect in modern history. And even Clinton herself has acknowledged her shortcomings in appealing to voters. “I am not a natural politician, in case you haven’t noticed, like my husband or President Obama,” she said at a Democratic debate in March 2016.

“The city is running us instead of us running the city, and it can’t keep happening like that,” said Ellington, who wants the city to cap rent at $1,000 a month. Infante, Ellington and Burgarini are employees at Cafe Zoe in Menlo Park, where owner Kathleen Daly gives them time to work on their music. The cafe is where the idea for the collective was born, in talks with Isaiah Phillips, an advocate for community arts in East Palo Alto. The artists plan to use proceeds from the show to develop a high-quality music video, as well as possibly organize an “art and activism” show featuring the entire collective, which consists of 10 members with hopes to expand.

Most of the dances were clustered in a “middle” range, with some improving but others, like Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd, needing to regroup. Peta needs to manage Michael’s strengths, both in his technique and his muscle power. And I thought that Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev were scored too low because the judges didn’t think they performed to the level of last week. The 5’s and 6’s should have been a bit higher. In all, it was a crazy night — from falls and minor injuries during rehearsals, to the sexy attire of judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough. Even Tom commented on Carrie Ann’s cleavage. Wow! The top four couples last week again topped the leaderboard in slightly different order — looks like those are the teams to beat.
