    • What Would Chinese Democracy Look Like?
      A few months ago I read a couple of books by the Singaporean intellectual Kishore Mahbubani. In “Has China Already Won he discusses Taiwan. The one exceptional trigger for a war involving China is Taiwan. Most of the time, the Chinese leaders have a lot of policy flexibility. There are no strong domestic lobbies to worry about. But the one issue where the Ch […]

Maybe the Obamaphiles drank oooone too many grain spiked beers at the last Obama kegger.  Do they know it yet?  Or will they feel it just after they take the last swig?  Todd Beeton at MyDD thinks they might have taken things too far and Russ Feingold is telling them to put their foot on the floor to keep the room from spinning out of control.

Too late, I think.

BTW, the end of the month approaches and so does Hillary’s fundraising quarter.  It takes money to run a campaign and until Obama drops out, she will need to raise funds.  So, if you’ve got a C-note looking for a purpose, send it along.  But I’m sure she would appreciate any amount you send.  Help Make History!

When a race is neck and neck

Brian Williams graciously explains the impossibility of Hillary’s campaign. Too bad he leaves out the part about counting every vote. He says she’s behind by every measure without mentioning that all measures leave Florida and Michigan out of the count. Maybe I’m just irritated by his smug self-satisfaction, but his political judgment didn’t impress me:

– Wednesday March 26, 2008

[Update Saturday Morning]

Bill Clinton Agrees with me.  He sent this message in an email this morning:

Here’s the most important thing you need to know about this race: it’s neck-and-neck.

Only 130 delegates separate Hillary from Senator Obama — and that’s not counting Florida and Michigan. The difference in popular vote is less than 1 percent, and millions of voters have yet to make their voices heard. This election should be about their choice.

But now we’re hearing people — elected officials, party members, and Obama campaign surrogates — call for Hillary to pull out.

With the race this close, it sure doesn’t make sense to me that she’d leave now — does it make sense to you?


I’m here! Yeah! We’re staying in the middle of Denver in a VERY nice undisclosed location. (It pays to have connections) I just had the minibar emptied so Brook doesn’t get tempted. We are going to take a tour of the kitchens with the chef in a minute. Might do a cocktail hour later if you guys are still up.
So, did anything happen today?

Friday- Fun!

Hi, Peeps, I’m on va-cay.  No this doesn’t mean I’m going to be able to tear myslef away from this blog.  But it *does* mean that I’ll be boarding a plane shortly and incommunicado for several hours.  And those of you who live in the NJ, PA, NY megalopolis probably know that I’ve been up since 5:30am just so I can get to the damn airport.  So, what I’m saying is that posting is rather lite this am.
