Woodward and Bernstein were pretty unreasonable too.

The thing about Clinton is that he loved being President more than his ideology. When he knew he had to do something to keep his job, or ensure his legacy, he did it. If his ideological compatriots didn't like it; oh well. He knew they were the fringe anyway, And he knew he'd pick up way more from the center. He was a pretty good politician.

It will be interesting to see what kind of mileage Cain gets out of his win. I suspect many people like him, but question his electability. Now, some of that shroud had been taken off. Things could get very interesting.

Well there are a lot worse choices, that's for sure. And I would not let his age prevent me from voting for him. And there were those who said Reagan was too old.

On balance I don't have a problem with holding hearings. The hearings should result in a dismantling of provisions of the tax code which provide "incentives" to engage in certain behavior. Let the market dictate behavior. Natural gas vehicles make sense; at current prices they are paid for in less than two years. There is no need for subsidies.

Was reading something about it the other day. Apparently, they had legally immigrated when he was born, but they had not yet become citizens. It is not settled whether he could serve.

Did you see the clip of him during the debt ceiling debate, when Kerry wanted to ask him questions? Kerry could hardly believe that Rubio actually yielded the floor to let him. Impressed me a lot. But I still think he's too young.

There is a lot to like about Cain. To me, he is the most genuine candidate, as well as the best leader. I hope he stays in there. I'm not ready to commit to him, but, unlike every other candidate, I can't find a reason NOT to vote for him. And he's the only one who gives me the Reaganesque "Gee, it's great to be an American" feeling.

But I think both are patriotic enough to accept the position if it were offered to them.
