Credit where it's due edit

This Project is clearly a blatant rip-off of WikiProject New Jersey, which in itself is a blatant rip-off of WikiProject Massachusetts, which, in turn, is a blatant rip-off of WikiProject Vermont, for which the creator of WP:WPDE (as I'm sure the other usurpers, as well) is eternally grateful, yet remoseful all at once.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. --DThomsen8 (talk) 11:18, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Candidate's names on ballots in US states edit

We found in our research related to the 2016 historic election campaign (Hillary Clinton for US President) to the 2020 campaign that it's significant "in women's history" who is listed on the ballots in each of the states. This time in relationship to voter's choices and formal race withdrawals (now at Joe Biden will pick a woman VP; post withdrawal of Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris), and in 2016, to "historic Green Party candidate Jill Stein" on reported 33 ballots against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton (First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of US, "Pres. Obama's Secretary of State"). ````Julie Ann Racino 2020````
