2008

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

I’m going to go out on a limb here – looking at 2008, I think it’s going to be Giuliani & Huckabee vs. Clinton and Obama. Huckabee adds conservative base to Giuliani’s liberal social views, while Obama appeases the net roots over Clinton’s more moderate views. Interestingly enough Rasmussen currently has Giuliani and Clinton in a dead heat, with Rudy snagging the lead by one percentage point. They’ve bounced around a bit though with Clinton in the lead at times as well. (Rasmussen’s also the only poller that nailed 2004, so I’ll trust them on their figures.) Looks like it’s going to be another nail biter. Can’t wait.

Stossel on Healthy Wisconsin

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

“I feel bad for the people in Wisconsin. They already suffer from little job creation, and the Packers aren’t winning, but it’s better to experiment with one state than all of America.”

That’s the way it’s supposed to work. More power to the Wisconsin legislature. You can read more about the “Healthy Wisconsin” plan here.
