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.

Liquor, though all three have their uses.

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

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.

11913  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Illinois Replacement Final "Official" Predictions :) on: December 09, 2008, 06:02:08 pm
 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?

"Candidate 1" = Valerie Jarrett?
"Candidate 5" = Jesse Jackson, Jr.?

Those are my guesses.  

Those guesses are guaranteed to be correct.

edit: Jones could be 5.

Jones would offer half a million dollars for a two year appointment?

11920  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: U.S. attorney: Governor tried to sell Senate seat on: December 09, 2008, 12:56:37 pm
The governor also often weighed the option of appointing himself to the Senate seat, saying he was "stuck" at governor and might have access to more resources as a senator than as a governor, the affidavit says. A Senate seat could also help him remake his image ahead of a possible presidential run in 2016. "If ... they're not going to offer anything of any value, then I might just take it," he said in one conversation.

LOL
11921  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: LA-2 results on: December 09, 2008, 12:31:35 pm
some other bloke 2.5 (great name though: Kenya Smith)

Who, by the way, was Nagin's second in command or something like that. His slogan was also "Kenya 2 Congress" instead of a 4 as one would expect. And when I was sign waving for Richmond, Kenya's only worker at that specific intersection was this little lady holding two signs who literally kept walking back and forth through traffic. Also, he was the funniest guy at the debate.

Well, I've gotta say I'm pretty excited here. I'm glad I predicted this one wrong.
Grin

Fun fact: I'm from California-15 (here at Tulane for college), so I'm one of probably 10 Americans (outside Hawaii) who has not one, but two Asian-Americans representing him in Congress. 

Awesome, I'm at Tulane as well- and I also agree with you about Cedric Richmond. Did you see the dem primary debate here on campus?

I did.  Are you in College Dems too?

Richmond was definitely the most impressive of that batch.  I hope and believe he'll be the nominee here in 2010.  But in this city, we'll probably pick Ray Nagin...

Yeah, though I haven't been to the meetings in a while. I did all the Richmond volunteering stuff so I definitely feel strongly about that guy.
