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 didn't catch the whole thing, but from what I saw, Kerry looked quite good. Dean, for all that I had heard of his take no prisoners Bush-blasting rhetoric, didn't impress me much at all. And the claims that he has changed his positions on free trade and Iraq do seem, from what I know of his past statements, justified. Perhaps becoming the frontrunner this early wasn't a good development for him. He took off speaking out with nothing to lose and what was assumed to be no chance to win. Now that he has something to lose, will he instead lose the style that got him here?
