Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Friday Prez Odds Update
Today's update on the 2008 presidential hopefuls' odds (to be found eternally in the side bar to the right):

- Bayh is gearing up for a run. No change in odds for now - we knew he was running.
- Edwards is already on the trail
- Five are already interviewing: Clinton, Vilsack, Bayh, Edwards, Kerry
- Biden called Hillary the "overwhelming, prohibitive favorite", and she's even managed to get Kerry to raise money for her, but I still don't see her as the favorite, until polls show sentiment swinging on her a bit.

- Bob Novak says McCain is 50/50 shot to run in '08. He will be 72. I think I'll knock him down slightly in the odds, to 5:1 (tied with Rudy).
- Sen. Specter backs the "Arnold Amendment", but that doesn't make it any more likely to happen.
- And I'm moving Bill Frist up from 5:1 to 4:1, making him my new leader for the GOP nomination (slightly over Chuck Hagel, who really hasn't been anywhere lately and might fall if he doesn't start making some noise).
