Received via email: Do you mind if we invite Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Hillary Clinton to talk with MoveOn members about Iraq in your living room? (OK, they'll be in about 1,000 other living rooms at the same time, but it's still unlike any other political gathering that's ever happened before). It's the first ever MoveOn Virtual Town Hall Meeting. Those candidates and others  will connect to living room around the country through an interactive webcast (or by speakerphone).
Adam Nagourney of the New York Times (with assistance from Rachel Swarns) offers "G.O.P. Candidates Confront Immigration Politics". Despite being two screens long, we're only told that GOP candidates are facing the ire of Iowa voters regarding immigration matters, but we aren't given much in the way of specifics. And, Nagourney doesn't attempt to ask Senator John McCain or others any tough questions that would reveal the flaws in their positions. About the only slight news in the piece is that McCain is backing away from Kennedy-McCain, and instead is moving towards a scheme similar to that...
The blog fight is on! Yesterday, "Captain Ed" posted an interview with Mike Huckabee. In a vain attempt to get someone - anyone - attending CPAC to ask anything remotely approaching a difficult question, I responded ("NoMoreBlatherDotCom"), the "Captain" responded, and now I have the feeling I'm about to be banned from yet another site. I posted the following comment:
Yesterday His Weirdness, aka former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, spoke in Silicon Valley and said: ...Giuliani praised [Arnold Schwarzenegger], calling him a "progressive leader." "I generally agree with Governor Schwarzenegger," Giuliani said... ...On immigration, Giuliani said while the
Rudy Giuliani announced that he's running for president on tonight's Hannity & Colmes, and watching his remarks on immigration I realized that he's completely full of $#*|. A transcript is here. Giuliani's euphemism for a massive illegal alien amnesty is "regularization".
Kathryn Jean Lopez ("KLo") at The Corner is apparently a supporter of Rudy Giuliani, someone whose immigration views are probably similar to those of George Bush. She says: A friend of mine ["the rare pro-life, Hollywood hawk"] was at a fundraiser for [Rudy Julliani] in Los Angeles last night ["sponsored by Bill Simon"]... ...[Rudy Juliani] did an immigration bit that was "to the right of everyone else except maybe Tancredo.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani hasn't declared himself to be a candidate for president, but has started a pro-Rudy non-profit that will probably start spreading pro-Rudy propaganda.
I think this column might be a week or two old, but it's just now being printed in the Houston Chronicle, so let's take a look at the thoughts of David Broder in "California's model for the middle": ...In 2005 [Arnold Schwarzenegger] declared war on the Democratic legislature and the public-employee unions and forced a special election on four initiatives designed to cripple the unions' influence and strengthen his hand as governor.
Insty directs our attention to Hugh Hewitt, who's conducting a straw poll for the 2008 presidential race. The lucky choices are: George Allen Sam Brownback Bill Frist Rudy Giuliani Mike Huckabee John McCain Mitt Romney Isn't the omission of Rep. Tom Tancredo rather curious? Well, not if you know how the BushBot mind works.
