    Much of the immgrination into Colorado is from emirigation from Califronia. Yet, the new residents in Colorado seem bent on repeating the same mistakes of California in electing Democrats. WTF. California was great as along as it was a majority Republican State. Then in the 90's in swinged wide to the Dems. Are these people insane in electing Democrats who got their original state in so much trouble in the first place that they had to move?

    TIme ^ | March 31, 1980 | Time
    For several decades, it has been an article of faith among politicians and political analysts that no candidate can win a U.S. presidential election unless he can dominate the broad center of the spectrum, that all candidates on the edges of the left or right are doomed. Barry Goldwater's "extremism . . . is no vice" campaign of 1964 provides the classic evidence, reinforced by George McGovern's 1972 defeat in 49 out of 50 states... Ex-President Gerald Ford left no doubt about his views when he warned last month: "A very conservative Republican cannot win in a national election."

    Dems to Lose House--and Win Senate? Up to now the Conventional Wisdom (CW) has been that the Dems have a very good chance to retake the House but will have a much harder time picking up the six seats necessary to take over the Senate. Is it possible this is backwards--that the Dems actually have a better chance of taking the Senate than the House?

    Missing Veto Pen Discovered in Spector’s Office The pen used by presidents to veto congressional legislation, which had been missing from the Oval Office since January 2001, has apparently showed up in the office of Judiciary Chairman Arlen Spector. According to sources within the White House, Spector was seen with the pen as he left a meeting with the President last week on possible nominees to the Supreme Court. President Bush nominated Harriet Miers to the post on Monday, and it is widely speculated that Spector’s appearance with the pen had something to do with Bush passing over of the...

    For the first time since all the speculation began, we have come to a rare holding pattern where the names of one day have not suddenly shifted. Robert Novak is reporting that Samuel Alito and Harriet Miers are in the running. I'm still hearing Corrigan and Alito, with Williams as a back up. Several I have spoken to say the President has considered Miers, but that the White House has calculated that it would have trouble holding the base given that Miers is more of an enigma than Roberts. The White House has made a calculation that the Democrats are...

    WASHINGTON — After a breakfast meeting with key Senate leaders at the White House Wednesday, President Bush was keeping close to his vest his choice of a replacement for Sandra Day O'Connor (search) on the U.S. Supreme Court. "I have raised a certain cautionary signal," Specter told reporters outside the Executive Mansion on Wednesday, "but I believe the next nomination is going to be a great deal more contentious than the Roberts' nomination. I say that because, bubbling just below the surface was a lot of frustration in the hearing that we just concluded." ******* The senators did not identify...

    Dear Friends: On Saturday, September 25, the great Michael Davies died. After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Mr. Davies was taken, perhaps mercifully by the Divine Judge, of a massive heart attack. The debt we all owe this extraordinary individual cannot be measured. We have lost a friend and mentor, the traditional movement has lost its uncontested elder statesman, and the Church has lost one of her greatest defenders of all time. Though he was not martyred, the name Davies can surely and without hesitation be placed alongside those of More, Fisher and Campion, as men who gave...

After requesting to visit the school, Terry McAuliffe was allowed by Principal Forrest Ransdell to come to teach what the principal believed to be social studies classes on democracy and the political process. However, several city officials are livid over what they say turned into a biased Democratic view of...

    (WCCO-TV) (Minneapolis) With the country on the brink of war in Iraq, police closed the Third Avenue bridge over the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis after finding a potential security breach Wednesday. Authorities discovered a lock at a power plant under that bridge had been tampered with, allowing access to a honeycomb of old tunnels near the bridge. Officers also found tools in the area. “It’s not the kind of thing homeless people normally use,” said Minneapolis Police Chief Olson. But there was no immediate indication of a bigger problem, police said. Chief Olson said officers decided to use "an...

    In addition to mourning the death of Paul Wellstone Friday, political leaders in Minnesota and Washington are forced to deal with more practical issues — who will replace Wellstone in the Senate and on November's ballot. His death marks the Democrat's loss of control of the U.S. Senate, where they held control by just one vote. And with elections just 11 days away, there is a scramble to figure out how to handle the death before the election day. Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch held a press conference to explain the procedure involved. Hatch, who at times choked back tears,...

Bush told the crowd that Pawlenty had proved that he knew how to get the job done. Then he said he needed Coleman...
