It'd be pretty funny if McCain ends up being one of Obama's strongest Republican allies in the Senate.

11904  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Rumor mill: Tulane Prez Scott Cowen for Education Secretary on: November 14, 2008, 02:03:58 pm
Been hearing it around campus all day, and just found this blog post:

http://theheadpelican.blogspot.com/2008/11/prediction-for-my-nearest-and-dearest.html

Essentially, reasons Cowen may be favored:

-personal friend of Joe Biden (Biden's daughter went here)
-He's sponsered some sort of big education initiative
-of course, the Katrina thing

The last big city Italian who ran for the GOP nomination got something like 2% in Iowa.

If you could really call what Guiliani did an actual attempt at running for the nomination, yeah.

11909  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Connecticut on British/Canadian districts on: November 14, 2008, 03:11:52 am
Hey, I'm not complaining. Having trouble sleeping myself.

But you know, two more seats there and you'd be districting the CT State Senate. Tongue

Still an awesome venture nonetheless.

We'd have to look at county results before can be sure of 'owt. But having a "Mc" in front of your name doesn't exactly hurt you in WV and, presumably, Arkansas. She also had the Mountain Party nomination in WV.

Isn't the Mountain Party the Green Party?

IIRC it became the state affiliate for the national Green Party a few years back but was independently existing prior to that.

I may be wrong though; lets wait for Al to clarify because he knows everything about WV.

You can remove the thing about the fish dumb test by deleting the second image code, by the way. Most annoying thing about imageshack.

11922  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Begich leads Stevens by 3 votes on: November 14, 2008, 02:21:45 am
As far as I know in cases like this the Senate can accept whoever they want for whatever reason they want.

Legally, anyway. Of course if they make a stupid biased choice they'd be paying for it in 2010.
11923  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Vitter vs. Craigslist? on: November 14, 2008, 02:12:16 am
True.  Rep. William Jefferson easily won a primary runoff after being indicted on 16 corruption charges, against a local news anchor no less.




He represents the New Orleans area though.

Moreno was a b!tch and made a point to act like one whenever she was near a TV camera. Rumors abounded that she A. was a lesbian and B. liked to sleep with older married men. The fact that she was a local news anchor doesn't in any way signify she was a good candidate. She was actually a pretty awful candidate even putting the whole race thing aside.

In fact, she was the worst candidate besides Jefferson in the primary. Even worse than Ray Nagin's best bud Kenya. She only got second place because most of the white vote coalesced behind her on account of her being the only white candidate. And of course Jefferson beat her because he's the black one. I hate it when race is an issue.

But eh, I'm still bitter about Cedric Richmond getting third. I'll probably end up voting for that guy in Lewis's signature, just for the hell of it. Oh well.

For what it's worth, Huntsman is one of my favorite Republicans.
