Setting the Stage: The Republicans First Debate - The Fix
Tommy Thompson: Like Huckabee, Thompson remains virtually unknown in national politics but has a compelling story to tell. During his time as governor of Wisconsin -- 1987 to 2001 -- Thompson was widely seen as one of the most innovative chief executives in the country. The question is whether he gets to tell that story tonight. Thompson remains an asterisk in most state and national polling and the bulk of the questions typically go to the frontrunning candidates. And, when Thompson does get his chances can he show some foreign policy chops despite focusing almost exclusively on domestic policy during his time in office?Um.... personally, I was unimpressed with Thompson. Very unimpressed. McCain? Not much better. Giuliani did pretty well, imho. (Now if I could just learn to spell his name) I must have made a pit stop during a couple of the candidates' questions, because I'm not sure I even heard them speak. Hmmmmm..... Romney? maaaaaybe? Where's Newt when you need him??? Or the "other" Thompson; the one who hasn't even declared yet?
I watched a spot on last night's news about the release of the Reagan diaries book, and this morning pre-ordered it. I'm looking forward to this one after reading so much the last few weeks about the end of the Cold War. Funny how much I disliked that man early in his term-- mostly due to the PATCO deal-- as a union member, I felt threatened. (And please don't start in on me about illegal strikes and the horrible unions, etc.- I've studied more on PATCO, understand the reasons for the breaking of the strike, and I know well that unions are far from perfect.) Anywho... after reading so much about Reagan and through simple aging and experience, I've found my respect for the man has grown immensely, so I'm looking forward to getting this book. Vanity Fair released short excerpts from the book on this page. I just love the entry for March 30, 1981, the day Reagan was shot after addressing the AFL-CIO building & trades conference in DC. The man was a MASTER!!!

THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME. This is about us, our country and our civilization, and in what practical and achievable ways we can protect, defend and improve her and her people. I'll close this small update with a little tease: We need all the help we can get. To this end, I have called upon Miss Rachel Lucas -- a voice of clarity and humor long and deeply missed around here -- to be the first of many guest writers here, and she agreed.Oh, this is great, this is so abso-LUTE-ly fantastic! I have missed Rachel's writing since she closed up shop at her blog a couple years back. To see her around again is just the wooHOO of the day. And there have been a couple of wooHOO's today. It's all over but for the paper signings and the
