l’ve just spent over a week in New York and wasted most of my time having fun with a fewvoters rather than trying to woo the masses. Frankly, if I could meet and win the votes of1,000 people a day between now and the primary September 14 | would amass a total ofabout 150,000 votes, enough to lose by a million.

They lose.
Kennedy will be remembered, warts and all; but the overwhelming image will be that of the last twenty eight years, especially the last  seventeen, since his marriage to Victoria Reggie Kennedy who is universally credited with bringing order …

The unrest among Illinois conservatives is palpable, to say the least, of US Rep. Mark Kirk’s (R-10) entry in the US Senate Primary for Pres. Obama’s former Senate seat. That conservative unrest is understandable, but before resources are used against Kirk, let me suggest that ambivalence may be a more profitable approach to his candidacy.
Conservatives have long disdained the North Shore Republican’s liberal voting record in the House of Representatives. He has gone against the mainstream of his party on pro-life issues, the War on Terror and gun control. He …
