We can do MUCH better

An answer to your question, Julie. I received an e-mail from Mr. Cox on Sunday. The Iowa Strawpoll was never seen as "make or break" for us by Mr. Cox. Merely as an introduction. He gave one heck of a speech, probably one of the top two (the other I thought was great was Mike Huckabee's)

I might look for Duncan Hunter to drop out next, but with Hunter, he's already retired from Congress. Unless he decides to campaign for his son, he doesn't have much reason to quit the race at this point.

Sam Brownback could go soon. 3rd Place was okay, but Huckabee could put pressure on him. Huckabee has got 2nd place, but he needs to raise money to stay competitve. We'll probably know within a month or so on those guys.

Just a correction on tomorrow's schedule at DCI. The downlink with the students will occur from 3:09 p.m. to 3:29 p.m. (not 12:56 p.m.). You can click on the link provided in your original post below (Godspeed, Barbara Morgan) to see the update.

Thanks, Irwin. I see that the DCI website domain actually expired a few days ago. Bad timing for them! But I'll take your word for this, and I've corrected the post.

Actually, I see that NASA has updated its page to 3:09 p.m. now, too.

Adam, it's good to see you are keeping faith with your candidate no matter what. He seems to have sufficient personal resources to stay in for a while.

I like Mike Huckabee. I wouldn't want to see him as president, mind you, but I still like the guy. Of course, lots of people were talking seven years ago about how likable a certain GWB seemed, so moderate Republican primary voters need to beware. Still, anyone who says people ought to listen to more music and less talk radio is OK in my book.

Of course he is, that's 'cause you're not a podcaster. :)


As long as there's either a Republican President or 41 Republican Senators, there won't be a draft. A draft would destroy the military, which only the most extreme progressives want. You do know that Rep. Rangel, who introduced the bill to bring back the draft the last two Congresses, is a Democrat, don't you?

Bubbelehead, I understand what you are saying.

But I don't think it's out of the question that, given current recruitment levels and repeat deployments, we won't be forced into a draft if we can't bring the Iraq occupation to a conclusion in the next two years.

From what I understand, Rangel filed his bills mainly as a protest against the way that poor, rural, and/or black/brown people are shouldering most of our nation's defense burden.
