I know people keep pushing for breaking up the South's dominance. I wonder if we can't bypass them.

How? How about a Hispanic for VP...

I have no issues with Edwards -- I think he handled himself very well & is a good viable candidate for future runs.

But I was really looking forward to Bill Richardson (1/2 hispanic, 1/2 white) as a VP candidate.

Why? A hispanic on the ticket I think would've gotten us several states.

Definites (in my opin): New Mexico, Colorado, Florida,

Probables (my opin): Arizona. Others?

In Play: Nevada, Arkansas (just a few more tilts)

Making them work for it: Texas -- it's the only way we'll get Texas or make it competitive.

The first party to make a serious bid to the Hispanic community -- VP -- will get that community & much clout.

If we do this, we win (& I think would've won) Florida, NM, Colorado & the presidency.

AND WE DON'T HAVE TO CATER TO THE BUBBA IN SOUTH WITH HIS CONFEDERATE FLAG!!
it's all about checks & balances....in this case pitting the Southwest & Florida vs the South[east].

If THEY do this, we're toast. & given the inroads they are making in that community, i really felt it important that we did it this time. & i worry that rove is savvy enough to do this.

Of course, hispanics as with any community don't like to be patronized & so would take any superficial gesture in that manner.

but you can't deny the power of having "one of your own" one heart-beat away from the presidency.

as a minority myself, i'd get very interested then myself.

How about Edwards for pres. & Richardson for VP?

That ticket would bring in the SW, FL, CA, IL. Should also deliver the East Coast.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on earthlab.com http://www.earthlab.com/articles/PresidentialCandidates.aspx . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.
