Changing Colors

“The most important political office is that of the private citizen.” ~ Louis Brandeis

Watch carefully – Before your very eyes Ohio will turn from Red to Blue.

The lines were very long at the polls this morning. We normally have six machines at our polling place. Today we had only three voting machines. What’s up with that, Ken Blackwell?

In talking with folks in San Francisco they had a good laugh about the commercials running in Ohio that say, “Ohio doesn’t have San Francisco values.” Mores the pity!

Things have been out of control this year. God bless the two Vermont opponents running for Congress who promised each other early on the neither would go negative. They agreed to stick to the issues and let the chips fall where they may.

They're on a first-name basis after 11 public debates. "She's a really good speaker," Welch says of Rainville, who retired last spring after nine years as adjutant general of the state's National Guard — the first woman in the nation to serve in that capacity.

Rainville is sticking by her pledge not to run attack ads even though a recent poll showed Welch, a veteran state legislator, opening up a lead after a summer in which the race was a dead heat.

"If I lose because I didn't go negative, so be it," she says. ~ USATODAY 11/02/06

Way to go Vermont!

“Every two years the American politics industry fills the airwaves with the most virulent, scurrilous, wall-to-wall character assassination of nearly every political practitioner in the country - and then declares itself puzzled that America has lost trust in its politicians.” ~Charles Krauthammer
