This would be especially resilient

This was pointed out to me by a few different people today. Mitch Landrieu typed up a brief essay and distributed it to subscribers to his campaign fund email list. The subject line is "We are resilient." In the email he includes photos of himself hanging out with the three visiting Presidents over the weekend.  The final paragraph is a flourish of his favorite campaign sloganeering.
Together, we're making the New Orleans comeback a reality. Together, there's nothing we can't do if we keep pressing on together -- one team, one fight, one voice, and one city.
 In solidarity,
Mitch Landrieu
Mayor of New Orleans
I also like that he used the word "solidarity."  I noted Sunday that Black Lives Matter organizer Alica Garza dismissed "solidarity" as a passive and powerless political buzzword when she spoke here last week.  So it fits Mitch to a tee.

Anyway what's really interesting,and what people are fixating on, is this part.

Is something called "Re-Elect Mitch Landrieu" soliciting donations?  Is he going to try the his hand at the third term charter change that eluded both Morials?    Seems unlikely but... you never know.  All the national attention last week might have gone to his head.  Maybe he's still thinking about being Governor.
