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

Friday Prez Odds Update
Dems: - I'm swapping Evan Bayh and Wes Clark. As the Iraq war shows no signs of dying down, it's hard to picture a baby-faced foreign-policy neophyte (hmm, perhaps I need to address John Edwards as well) being trusted in an era of pressing national security issues. A general on the other hand is understandably appealing. So I'm moving Clark up to 7:1 and knocking Bayh back to 9:1. - If I'm harping on foreign policy experience, then I've also got to take Richardson down, so he's going from 6:1 to 10:1. - Al Gore called himself "a recovering politicians" when discussing his new (non-partisan) TV station. That doesn't bode well for my theory that he'll come back and do well. So I'm obliged to take my once-2nd-favorite down further to 14:1.
