Barry Gordon, was 2 years too soon....still fighting for great causes I agree with

from the past...James Rosen Republican deplorable, a familiar name today defeated him back in the late 90s.

what is interesting is, I had no idea all this time that THAT Barry Gordon was THAT Barry Gordon.

I happened to be watching the 50s show Leave it to Beaver, and in one of the most controversial episodes for that time, a show episode about divorce... and lo and behold, the kid in the show was very familiar looking so I looked it up, and it was Barry Gordon, the kid who had at the time the biggest Christmas song and the youngest male
to have a top 10 hit "Nuttin' For Christmas" who later on was on Archie Bunker's Place.

Became the longest head of Screen Actors Guild 1988 to 1995 and ran for office vs. James Rosen and lost by only a couple of points.
Radio host
a few years later, the Democratic party took the seat, so had he won, today for all we know Barry Gordon
might be running for President or VP or might already have...

And at 71, still fighting for causes I agree with.

A big salute to Barry Gordon! #barrygordon @barrygordon
