Similarly, or not, take a look at these Kansas City politicos who do their best to approach the spotlight confidently.
1. Mayor Sly James - It's party time in Kansas City and that's when this politico shines.
2. Jackson County Legislator Crystal Williams - A coup and hard feelings after an LGBT group endorsement give her a temporary bump.
3. MO House Rep. Judy Morgan - She's attempting to create some excitement about her candidacy and doing a decent job getting out in local neighborhoods.
4. MO Sen. Claire McCaskill - Her rural area challengers don't seem nearly as formidable as most had hoped. Call it the "Romney Effect."
5. Congressman Cleaver - Also, we thought his race would be more competitive . . . It's not.

Visit a small biz East Of Troost - They exist and they're awesome!!!
Read A Book - Seriously, when is that last time you cracked a book?
