  • A Better Choice

    Trump! Clinton! Is that all there is? No. Fortunately, we have other choices. A recent poll shows that if the election were held today, 11 percent of Americans would vote for a Libertarian, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. That's surprising, since last election Johnson got just 1 percent of the vote. This year, he's doing better, probably because Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold the highest percentage of "unfavorable" reactions from voters in more than 30 years. I assume the Libertarian total will go higher, since most poll respondents had no opinion about Johnson. They probably don't know who...

    Former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani told The Washington Times on Tuesday that he is keeping “the door open” to a 2012 presidential bid, saying he might jump into the race if he believes the other candidates are unelectable. Mr. Giuliani is slated to speak next month in New Hampshire, where he finished fourth among 2008 Republican presidential candidates in the first-in-the-nation primaries. “I’m going to go to New Hampshire to speak to a law enforcement group, so that’s really the main purpose of the speech, but I keep in contact with people in New Hampshire and try to...

    New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson yesterday suggested when endorsing Sen. Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential race that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton should drop out, while a primary-election lawsuit had made it tougher for the former first lady to secure the party's nomination. The one-time candidate's endorsement helped Mr. Obama at the end of a difficult week, giving him the support of another former Clinton administration official who also is a superdelegate and a high-profile Hispanic. "You will be an outstanding commander in chief," Mr. Richardson told the Illinois senator at a rally in Portland, Ore., yesterday. "Above all, you...

    WASHINGTON - Republican Sam Brownback will drop out of the 2008 presidential campaign on Friday, people close to the Kansas senator said Thursday. Brownback, a longshot conservative contender, had trouble raising money to compete in the race. He is expected announce his withdrawal in Topeka, Kan. He raised a little more than $800,000 in the third quarter of this year, his lowest quarterly amount since entering race. He has brought in more than $4 million overall and is eligible for $2 million in federal matching funds.

    Nebraska State Paper ^ | May 04, 2007
    The Leavenworth Street political blog took note today of a story by Bloomberg News, reporting that Senator Chuck Hagel declined to rule out a bid for president as an Independent candidate, and even said such a bid �is possible.� Interesting story. Hagel didn�t say he would make such a bid, just that (like almost everything else) he would not rule it out. Here is the story, as reported by Leavenworth Street. According to a Bloomberg News article, Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel said he would consider running for President as an Independent: An independent bid "is possible," Hagel, 60, said in...

    If Duncan Hunter is a long-shot for the Republican nomination for president in 2008, he's not admitting it. Buoyed by a third-place finish -- and statistical tie for first place -- in a Spartanburg County straw poll over the weekend, Hunter brought his conservative message to about 80 people at the 1st Monday Republican Lunch Group at Aunt Chiladas Restaurant on Hilton Head Island. The California congressman outlined a platform that includes ripping up current trade policies with China, building a double wall along the Mexican border and a steadfast resolve to keep nuclear weapons out of Iranian hands. Hunter's...

    ONE consequence of President Bush's approval ratings being in the porcelain facility (my editors don't like me using the word toilet) is that many people are looking ahead to the next president. This presidential race is no earlier than the other one. Abe Lincoln was laying the foundation for his 1860 run when he helped form a third party in 1854 called "the Republicans." What makes the 2008 race appear to be early is that is where the attention is. The rest of the political circus is boring, as the Senate debates whether to debate a resolution that in a...

    WASHINGTON – Morris Udall. Dick Gephardt. John Kasich. Bob Dornan. Jack Kemp. James Garfield. Dennis Kucinich. What these gentlemen have in common – other than having all served in the House of Representatives – is that each ran for the White House while he was still a congressman. Only one of them made it. Morris Udall Dick Gephardt John Kasich Bob Dornan Jack Kemp James Garfield Dennis Kucinich Duncan Hunter And he got shot. Now that Duncan Hunter has taken the plunge for the Republican presidential nomination official, the Alpine congressman may soon encounter the peculiar challenges that face a...

    When Bob Hunter, a Riverside, Calif., businessman, would hear of a conservative's campaign that needed volunteers, he would pile his family into the station wagon and drive off to ring doorbells. Hunter's son Duncan grew up believing in retail politics. When Hunter returned home after serving as an alternate Goldwater delegate at the 1964 Republican convention in San Francisco, he told Duncan about chatting with another alternate, an amiable fellow, some actor, named Reagan. Who two years later was elected governor. Duncan learned early on about rapid upward mobility in politics. In 1969, he dropped out of college, joined the...
