Just thought this was interesting. 

Results for Tulane's precinct, 14 13-A: Cao 168, Jefferson 12, Rhim 11, Kahn 5.

In last months primary it was: Moreno 504, Jefferson 198

In October it was: Cedric Richmond 38, Moreno 29, James Carter 23, Troy Carter 6, Kenya Smith 5, Jefferson 2, Byron Lee, 1

Obviously, there is little love lost between us and Bill Jefferson.

And the Presidential results: Obama 931, McCain 279, Ron Paul 15, and Nader (who visited campus as part of his campaign) 9.


I'm convinced most of Jefferson's voters here in November were just people who showed up to vote for Obama but didn't know anything about the Congressional race so they just ticked the box for the incumbent.


Btw, did you see the snow this morning? Grin

Probably.  It's possible we have one or two students who actually like Jefferson or really disliked Moreno, but probably most voted for the incumbent.

The snow was awesome.  New Orleans was about the last place I expected to see it!  First time since I've seen snow since I was 8, when I was in Denver. 

Wow. That is so alien and bizarre to me.

It must be weird to live in a refridgerator. I've only seen falling snow once, and that was on Memorial Day.

Well, I've never seen snow where I live.  Since I assume you did that one time, you're the one in the freezer, along with Jefferson's money. 

Me? No, that was at Kings Canyon.

Ah.  I was wondering "Did it snow in the South Bay while I wasn't looking?" 

Tongue

As far as I know, it hasn't snowed in the valley in over a decade.

My parents told me it snowed lightly in the 80's or something.  That's about it. 

When it first started snowing in New Orleans I thought it was hail.  Then I saw people going out and not ducking for shelter, so I knew it was safe then.

Lol, yeah. I got woken up by a friend who ran into the room shouting at me to look out my window at the snow. At first I tried to ignore him because I figured they were just doing a fake snow thing in Warren Quad (I'm in Butler) like they did in the Academic Quad last week.

On paper my current district is extremely safe for the Democratic Party. Dollar Bill however had something to say about that and proceeded over the past few years to give everyone a reason to kick him out.

I believe there is a 0.1% chance that one elector will refuse to vote for Obama because of this.

Why would it be that high?
There is a small possibility that one of the Democratic electors was such an embittered Clinton supporter that he/she would jump at any excuse not to vote for Obama.

There's also some chance that an elector is senile enough to consider this thing credible, or something.

There is no Barclays slate, though Kevin Delaney, who runs their operation on Sark, is standing.

This guy didn't win, so I'm assuming here the anti-Barclays won?

Understand Inks that in states where consumption is not illegal, possession still is.

Although there's a few things about him I really don't like, I'd definitely consider voting for the guy.

1. I guess so but it's better than not existing.
2. I've never seen Seinfeld actually.
3. Never seen the video.
4. Not really.
5. I could see this happening, but I also don't doubt the Church's ability to remain relevant in a changing world.
6. If it happens, of course yes.
7. Nope.
8. Probably.
9. I guess so.
10. I wouldn't personally know.

As best I recall, a governor cannot appoint himself to a Senate vacancy.  I think the governor has to resign, then under a pre-signed agreement, the new governor appoints the previous one to the Senate.  I know this happened in Oklahoma in 1963 when Governor Edmondson resigned, was replaced by Lt Gov Nigh, then appointed to the Senate 8 days before Henry Bellmon became governor.

Strongly doubt that the IL Lt Gov would appoint Blago to the Senate!

Depends on state law I think.

 Blago was trying to 'deal' with Obama in getting Candidate 1 installed as Senator.  In return Obama was going to get together with Buffett and Gates to set up a 'non-profit' foundation probably in the area of health care with 10 or 15 million in seed money to start out with.  Blago was then going to head up the foundation.

Yup--its true.  Couldn't make this stuff up!!!

Ill Ind

Was there any actual involvement of Obama, Buffett, and Gates, or was this all just Blago's silly plotting?
