Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

I speculated below on the possibility that Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante would be a possible strong candidate in the event of a recall election against Gray Davis. Bustamante has now said that he isn't running, although his phrase, "I do not intend to put my name on that ballot", leaves some wiggle room. The current position is that state Democrats are uniting behind Davis, but, if it gets to the point where sufficient signatures are certified and an election called, I still expect some name Democrat will land on the ballot.
