Primary Observations

A couple of weeks ago, my best friend Jim emailed me, asking about the specifics of starting a blog. Adam and I ran by his home a few days later to visit and give him a little primer on blogs. He'll be starting it soon, which is a good thing, because his observations on the primaries have been dead on. My favorite has been about Bill Clinton, who he and I both loved as President, and would have voted for as many times as he would have run (assuming an end to the two-term limit). As a President he was great. As the husband of a candidate, not so good-- Jim pointed out that he has taken the appearance of an overbearing Little League dad.

The New York Times online has called the Republican Primary election for McCain in Florida. Apparently Rudy Guliani's strategy to sit out primaries and wait for a big win in Florida hasn't panned out so well. He's duking it out with Mike Huckabee for third place, with about 15% of the votes.

I see Guiliani has reaped the fruits of his "don't bother to compaign" campaign strategery.

Looks like Rudy the Ghoul is out.

Hopefully, Bill will get it together for the long haul.

Oh, great! Another must read blog.

All kidding aside, I bet it will be great.

I laugh at Guiliani's defeat.

I too would've voted for Clinton as many times as he would have run. His wife - I'm still on the fence about that.

But surely many dems must think that if they get her they get Bill, he certainly makes it sound that way in the interviews I seen. Several dems I've spoken to seem to have an aversion to the dynasty aspect of the Clintons. What say you Johnny Yen on this issue and do you know who you will throw your hat to now that Edwards is gone?
