    I’ve never been interested in the survivor type programs, including Donald Trump’s sophisticated program “The Apprentice“, but am familiar with the basic way they work. “The Apprentice” provides the best model for choosing a president, but the political parties should also consider the process of “voting people off the island”. On the basic “Survivor” programs contestants are divided into tribes and work together to survive in a wilderness setting. They conduct periodic votes in which individuals are gradually “voted off the island” until only one remains. On “The Apprentice” contestants are assigned business related tasks. Donald Trump, or comparable people...
  • The Assassination of Ronald JumpCandidateA Cautionary Tale.

    The President of the United States winced as he watched the huge, retreating backside of the First Lady exiting the Oval Office like a heaving cargo galleon under full sail. The President spoke to his front office, "Is she gone?" "Yes, Mr. President." President Bara O'Hara finally sat back and relaxed in his chair, ignoring the pile of food and accouterments left before him by his wife. Free of her food surveillance, he pulled open the lower right drawer of his massive desk, a gift from Queen Victoria to President Hayes in 1880, where he'd hidden the Bacon & Cheese...

    I just read about the hundreth sob story about how the Republican is history, how we are going to fragment, how we are going to come apart at the seams. There is also handwringing about how there is going to be a bloodbath in the house and senate. I am sick and tired of this useless negativity! We are in the middle of an election that is important that party. It is necessary that we all work all we can to elect McCain/Palin and the rest of the ticket. Tell me, all you defeatists and "sunshine patriots," what efect to...

  • Poll Analysis: Hillary would struggle to win; Those who know Thompson like him; Rudy most popular

    Hillary Clinton's disapproval ratings (42%) are 50% higher than any other candidate. (The next highest are John Edwards and John McCain, each at 28%). 52% would not vote for Hillary Clinton under any circumstance. That a majority would never vote for her does NOT mean she'd lose any contest. Half of Americans don't vote. Other surveys have found, for instance, that Fred Thompson would only tie her, at 42%. That means that 16% of the electorate might vote for Thompson. Or they could stay home. Or Thompson could even lose by a ratio of 48-42, with 10% of "likely voters"...

    Five years ago, former Senator Fred Thompson seemed ready to say goodbye to White House dreams for good. Hed announced his re-election campaign in the wake of the attacks of Sept. 11, but seemed to lose steam after the death of his daughter a few months later, ultimately abandoning the run in the spring of 2002. At the funeral, I went over to him, and he was obviously just drained, recalled Representative Zach Wamp of Tennessee. And he said to me, Ive just lost my heart for [public] service. Ive lost my heart. So, like his fellow Tennessean, Al Gore,...

    Thank you ladies and gentlemen. The reception you have given me and Lynne warms our hearts. The genius of the founding fathers is that they put together a government that can be run by ordinary people. Im a very ordinary guy, but folks, I have a very extraordinary family. I had a very average tour of duty in the military and didnt do anything special, but my son, Duncan, quit his job and joined the Marines after 9-11 and served two tours in Iraq. I was a less than average student, but my brothers Bobby and John are world class...

    SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - Leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva easily won the most votes in Brazil's presidential election but failed to score an outright victory, sending Brazilians back to the polls and heralding more volatility for financial markets. The result of Sunday's vote still left the former metalworker in a strong position to win the leadership of Latin America's biggest country in a Oct 27 run-off and become its first elected leftist leader. The inconclusive outcome means more anxious days ahead for Brazil's 170 million people -- and for domestic and international investors, who had poured money into...

    Chirac re-elected in landslide over ultra-right leader Le Pen 05/05/2002 By JOCELYN NOVECK / Associated Press PARIS - President Jacques Chirac was re-elected Sunday in a landslide victory over extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, exit polls showed, after a dramatic presidential race that shook France to its foundations. All three of France's major polling firms gave Mr. Chirac between 81 and 83 percent of the vote, with Mr. Le Pen getting 17 to just over 18 percent. Mr. Chirac's huge victory was helped by a larger turnout than for the April 21 first round, when only 72 percent of...

    Lieberman's White House plans don't include Gore Former running mate looking to make presidential bid in 2004 05/05/2002 New York Times News Service WASHINGTON - Al Gore plucked him from the sidelines where he was a junior senator and put him on the Democratic national ticket in 2000. They almost made it to the White House, in fact beating George W. Bush and Dick Cheney in the popular vote. So Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut would like to see Mr. Gore run again in 2004 and claim the position that eluded him. Right? Well, wrong. Asked whether he thought...
