But returning to the topic of the thread, what is your opinion of Ehrlich?

Love/Hate type thing.  I disagree with his politics, but I like his cocky attitude.  Theres no doubt, the man has balls.  He has vetoed several bills that should have guranteed he would lose re-election, but his approval rating and re-elect numbers remain steady.  He has shaken up Maryland politics and put Democrats on their toes.  I like that.

in no particular order:

bill richardson (D-NM)
mike easley (D-NC)
george pataki (R-NY)
jim douglas (R-VT)
jodi rell (R-CT)
ohil bredesen (D-TN)

least favorite:
kathleen blanco (D-LA)...horrible, horrible person

Jim Douglas just barely missed my list, too.

Why do you hate Blanco so much?

im amazed that the democrats get all up in arms over saxby chambliss' campaign tactices, but they let kathleen blanco slide with her repulsvie tactics she used against a good man.


What are you talking about? Could you explain? I think you mean her race (no pun intended) against Bobby Jindal in 2003. What could she possibly have done thats worse than calling an injured war veteran unpatriotic?

she pretty much said he was 'too young'.

now that might not sound like a big deal.  but imagine it being the other way around.  what if a candidate would say their opponent is too old to serve.  everyone would be offended.  the aarp would have a field day.

age discrimination works both ways.

Yes, just like it did in the 1984 presidential election.

Okay, for a minute there I thought you meant she did something really bad, but calling someone young or inexperienced is in a whole different category from questioning their patriotism.

Major difference being that, at least in Florida, they counted the votes that were there.  New ballots just seem to be spilling out of the cracks in Washington.  Most of the them *gasp* Republican.

Both Gregoire and Rossi weren't very good candidates.  But, like Florida in 2000, there were some serious flaws in the Washington electoral process.  Though I think if you're going to claim that Rossi won, then you might as well say that Gore won in 2000.

Except that doesn't make any sense.  Simply because you believe one person was robbed of office you are obliged to believe another candidate in a different race, different state, and different year was also rbbed?  Not exactly.

I think listing Dino Rossi is hysterically funny.
