No Gore for you

Looks like Al Gore is taking the high road and won’t be endorsing a candidate during the primaries.

From CNN:

The sources say Gore talks with both Clinton and Obama, and is on good terms with both. But with Sen. John Kerry and Bill Clinton both aligned to a candidate, Gore has a role to serve as the neutral elder statesman in the party.

I guess this election has been divisive enough without Gore adding to it.   I did hear today that both Clinton and Obama will be meeting with John Edwards in the coming days.   If that endorsement comes – it will be interesting to see who for.

Another interesting article:

Ron Paul Won’t Endorse McCain

Ron Paul said he’d only support McCain for president if the Arizona senator “has a lot of change of heart” on his Iraq war stands.

Thank god there’s one Republican with some common sense on this issue.   McCain’s quote that he would be willing to keep the troops in Iraq for 100 years will be the sound-bite of the summer.

Super Tuesday 2008

What a crazy week.   I’ve been so busy at work.   I haven’t had a chance to look at my Google Reader account and should be working instead posting.   Anyway.

  • Watching MSNBC right now and Mike Huckabee has the line of the night “[Senator Romney] has taken both sides of the whining issue.”   The more I listen to the Republicans, the more I hate Romney.   He seems to bring back the Karl Rove way of politicking.
  • I’m here rooting for Obama and McCain – weird.   Mike Huckabee seems like a nice reasonable guy – but he scares me and I don’t think he should be President.   I’d have a beer with him, but wouldn’t vote for him.
  • I think I’m tired of the media reporting on all the racial statistics – I’m not sure it gets us anything.
  • Romney wins Utah (Mormon land) and Massachusetts (he was governor) and nothing else.   Maybe people see him for what he is – slime.
  • Obama winning Connecticut is as much a blow to Clinton as her winning Massachusetts is for Obama.
  • Really – Ron Paul is running?   And what’s with Joe Biden, Dennis Kucinich, and Bill Richardson still being on the ballot in New Jersey?
  • I just watched Chris Matthews flat out lie in an interview to Huckabee.   He said that Mississippi governor Haley Barbour said in an interview that Huckabee and Romney should drop out because they can’t catch McCain.   What he said was that when there is a clear winner, the others should drop out.   Matthews did this about 10 minutes after his interview with Barbour.   This is why we should hate the media.
  • It’s amazing how divided the Republicans are.
  • Wow – we didn’t watch American Idol to watch the election results.   Much more interesting.
  • I’m staying up to see the Alaska results come in – all 12 of them.
  • McCain just said “national primary”.   If he promises that I vote for him. (Come on, if Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh hate him, he can’t be that bad).
  • Oooh, will CNN leave McCain to broadcast Obama?   I can’t believe they’re going to speak at the same time – don’t the campaign people schedule this better?

It looks like we’re going to be moving on without a winner on the Democratic side.   I’m getting tired and have more work to do.

I like the way Ron Paul sounds

I don’t agree with Ron Paul’s policies (he’s anti-abortion and pro-gun rights), and I don’t support him, but I like how he’s campaigned. He speaks with conviction and passion, and he says what he believes, not what is politically expedient (if he did, he would be supporting this failure of a war – like the other Republican’s do).
