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

Friday Prez Odds Update
Dems: - Ed Klein's anti-Hillary book seems to have created the exact opposite of its desired effect, despite it ranking in the Top 5 of sales on Amazon. Even conservative commentators like Bill O'Reilly are denouncing it for its "personal attacks". Could people rally to Hillary's side as the right continues to attack her character? Remains to be seen.
GOP: - I'm moving McCain ahead of Chuck Hagel. The press has been good to McCain lately, and this Zogby poll, showing him beating Hillary 54-35, is remarkable. My odds are for the nomination, not the general election, but the fact that McCain has such broad support signals that he is more likely to be able to overcome the resistance of the Christain conservative wing of the Republican party. McCain goes to 9:2.
