No one but me will be interested but I am commenting anyway.

  1. Tommy Thompson the former secretary of health is running for president. Must say that really suprised me. I thought he was a really lack luster secretary of health. Sounds like his name will be on the ballot in the Iowa primary.

    They only announce that they are a possible coandidate so that they can travel and raise funds. Just because they have announced things now, in no way means that they will be on the ballot even for the primary. Already there was mention of one senator that announced that he was running, but has already backed down. I am sure that you will hear that from many in the next months.

    Same as it has always been.

    I was really disappointed that Evan Bayh isn't running in 2008. He was governor of Indiana before becoming senator and he was by far the best governor ever. While in office our state had a $6 billion dollar surplus, schools was excellent, he revamped the lower income areas, revitalized downtown. And he is honest. His wife is wonderful and he is all about family. He would have made a wonderful president, probably alot like JFK without the womanizing, cheating, drinking, etc. He would have brought alot of respect to the White House.

    I heard that Dean or Edwards was possible going to run again. I just know the next president has his work cut out for him. It's going to be hard cleaning up this mess.

    [S]It is so impossible to even think about the mess the next FEW are going to have, we should probably elect a comittee[/S]
