First Open Thread

Sorry for the light posting today. For a few hours this afternoon I lacked internet access due to a dispute with PECO (the electric company). The dsipute has been resolved (it was their fault, my balance due was less than zero), but this will still probably mean that I will be unable to post until ten or eleven tomorrow monring. In the meantime, let's try an open thread. Here are some topics for discussion:

One in ten Americans works for a fast-food joint.

Kathleen Sebelius, the Governor of Kansas with strong ties to Ohio (her father was both Senator and Governor of that state), might be on Kerry's short list. She might even be one of the final three, according to MSNBC.

Bush might be running out of money. At the very least, we will not be running ads during the final week at the end of June.

Zolton Grossman has compiled a complete list of Unites States military interventions since 1890.

There is also a VP poll.

Vilsack in Wisconsin
I don't see where he brings much here. Half the State Democratic convention walked out on him last weekend.

Re: Vilsack in Wisconsin
Ouch. And I thought that "Kerry-Vilsack" just sounded bad. Couple this with Al From's endorsement, and Vilsack looks like a terrible choice.

Upper Midwest
IMHO, the strongest VP to lock up this part of the country would be Representative Dave Obey. His Northern Wisconsin District has given him a high profile in MN and the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. Strong pro-gun record would help with WV, PA, etc.

Voted "present" on Patriot, against Iraq war, against NAFTA.
