NEWS AND COMMENT


NADER CONSIDERING ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL BID

How about a Bloomberg/Nader ticket? One billionaire who could wreck this election and one proven spoiler.

Or is there room for only one third-party egomaniac?




Clinton Wins in Florida

Most media reports go on to say that no delegates were awarded in the Democratic primary because its timing violated party rules. However few, if any, emphasize that this was not a contested election and that Obama's message and persona were not presented to Florida voters. Of course, the former first lady would win big.

And she'll push to have these delegates counted.

I hope that pundits and editorial writers will criticize the presumptuous, cynical performance by Senator Clinton in holding a "triumphant" victory rally in Florida on election night.

Wolfowitz Returns to U.S. Government as Adviser

The Department of State is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Paul Wolfowitz as the Chairman of the Secretary of State’s International Security Advisory Board.


COMMENT - Having Wolfowitz back in our government would be terrifying were it not for the fact that his predecessor in this position was former Senator Fred Thompson. Apparently, this is not a highly-charged position.



Kucinich to Drop Bid and Focus on Re-election
The other candidates are now competing vigorously for the endorsements of both of his supporters.


Thompson Ends Campaign for G.O.P. Nomination
If a Thompson campaign falls in a forest, does anyone notice?



NY Times— A proposed amendment to the Colorado Constitution that would give legal rights to fertilized human eggs may be headed for the ballot next year.

I wonder if it will be passed in time for these human embryos to be included in the 2010 census. When will they get the right to vote?

  • I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming.

    The Daily Green just put an article out talking about how the presidential candidates are not being asked where they stand on the issue of the climate change - this is surprising to me considering its such a MAJOR concern to people. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot what their next leader thinks about global warming (after you take it they show you the results). Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

    If not, go to http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx and take their poll to see which way the results go. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. No matter which political party you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.

  • Thanks for your comment, Anomynous. I, too, am disappointed by the lack of attention to global warming.

    My view is that Bush, by ignoring and denying the global warming threat, will prove to be the cause of many more deaths and much more property destruction than result from the Iraq misadventure.
