Randy, Propositions like this shows how shallow and limited California liberalism can be. We had already passed a similar proposition that was defeated in the courts. I wouldn't be surprised to see another proposition for the next election to undo this one. Best, Ray

Pete, I'm pleased that you are part of this, but you don't seem to appreciate how unique and wonderful this opportunity is in the face of a possible world depression. The next year is going to be very difficult. We need to have hope to get us through, so we look to precedents to Barack. FDR comes to mind as the only president to deliver in such circumstances. Even the analogy to FDR doesn't

You're right, Randy, this is more a decisive victory than a landslide. Now if I were Barry, I'd concentrate more on the states that I lost than the ones I won--and go for a Reagan level landslide in four years. The proof of a true landslide for Obama would be to win Texas! Agreed? Ray

Hi Sue, What happened yesterday is certainly hard to ignore. It's transformational, and we need that transformation. Let's not forget the contribution of John McCain last night. I pray that he can lead as many Mavericks as possible into cooperation and collaboration. We need everyone on the same side. Best, Ray

Hi Janet, He's our president now--and we must all try to find our own way to support him. What's to come is not sure. It's partly attitude. Our time has a 60's feel with a depression overlay. To get a sense of that overlay, we need to think of FDR. As a New Yorker, you might not remember the effect FDR had on "regular" people. Here's a reminder: QuoteWE'VE GOT FRANKLIN DELANO RO

Great comment, Randy, we need to give him a chance and give him support--knowing that he's not going to be perfect. Whatever we might have thought yesterday--he's our president now. Best, Ray

Dirk, I read it and I recognized what he was trying to do--but it didn't work for me. I actually like the so called RINO Republicans--who may be necessary to the future of the post Obama Republican Party. Ray

19783. Re: If
Hi Sue, Here in South Pasadena, I went to vote "down the street" in a church near the high school. We have a punch card system that works quite well. It's a low tech alternative to voting machines. After I voted, I made a cup of cocoa and sat in the patio with a friend, watching the voters come and go. There were no long lines or signs of hostility. Got into a conversation with a

Dirk, The 2008 totals are already in the 50's, and the spread is 5. The spread is unlikely to change much, but the final total is likely to be higher than 2004. A decisive victory. Best, Ray

Hi Lily, I'm with you. Robin Hood has many mythical counterparts. Woody Guthrie writes about Pretty Boy Floyd (who robbed banks)--and how he gets rid of his ill gotten gains--and his concept of social justice: QuoteBut a many a starving farmer The same old story told How the outlaw paid their mortgage And saved their little homes.

The architect is not optimistic. Karl Rove, who is widely credited as the mastermind behind President Bush's election victories in 2000 and 2004, predicts that Democratic nominee Barack Obama will win Tuesday's election with 338 electoral votes while Republican John McCain garners 200. The forecast puts Rove at the higher end of predictions for an Obama victory, even with several of the closest

Dirk, The election won't decide who was correct. There are many reasons why Obama could lose besides the Pumas. And if he wins, it's not because some Pumas didn't vote against him. McCain's not going to win--it's the margin and magnitude of the Obama victory that is the issue. Ray

Dirk, I went to the Hillbuzz/Puma Website and linked to Paul Marston, who lives in Maricopa County, Arizona, and works as a Republican political operative doing mass mailings. On his biography, he describes his work for Republicans since Goldwater days. It was Paul who made the chart and projections you posted. His analysis requires one to make a whole series of assumptions about those who h

Dirk, Pete's point was that Republican is not synonymous with conservative. My point was that Republicans might not be conservatives at all any more. You seem willing to define conservatisn in an ideological manner rather than an intellectual manner. The Republicans of my grandfather's day were what you might call fiscal conservatives: my grandfather partially owned a bank and ran a number o

Dirk, First of all, it's not my list--and it's not the only list--so don't direct your comments to me. There are obviously serious problems within the Republican party concerning the place of a conservative and quite separate discussions about the definition of a conservative. I personally never thought of Reaganites as conservatives, and they clearly don't mix well with the Huckster and his f

Pete makes a distinction between being conservative and being Republican. There are many conservatives who endorse Obama. This article explains the significance.

These include former Republican congressmen such as Jim Leach and Lincoln Chafee, former governors such as
