Yesterday, I suspected something was going on up north when the Romney camp sent out this anti-Giuliani 'Big City, Big Spender'
press release. Sure enough, the two are tangling
in New Hampshire. Rudy's camp has since countered with a 'Romney's Taxachusetts Hypocrisy'
press release. ... So Rudy is finally making his big move in NH. Hard to believe, but the NH primary is just around the corner. ...
Still on politics: I really enjoyed this anti-dynastic piece
by Peggy Noonan. I'm so sick of them all. The thought of 28 straight years
of these two families running the country is depressing. ... Gotta admit: I've been impressed with Joe Biden. By far, he's been the most thoughtful Dem on Iraq (with 'thoughtful' defined as someone whose views somewhat match mine). But I don't see him winning -- which I know plays into the hands of the dynastic types. Still reviewing Obama and Richardson. I may have to curve the grades for them. But I won't curve the grades for Republicans. None of them pass the Hub Blog test. (Keep in mind I was once intrigued with the policy-wonkish Tommy Thompson, before he quietly self-destructed.) ... Fred Kaplan
on the departure of Gen. Peter 'Parrot' Pace. Sorry. I know he served his country to the best of his abilities. But it wasn't good enough. ...
