Please... Judd Gregg is GOPer who has overstayed his welcome and is probably heading to defeat in his next re-election. If he resigned over a policy disagreement, it wouldn't touch Obama at all. You overestimate most of the secretary positions and their effect on the average voter. There are very few that have any real impact (State, Defense, Treasury and AG.. maybe) on votes and even then I can't remember the last one that truly damaged a President... Maybe Gonzo, but ONLY because Bush was on the ropes anyway... If Rummy can't get Bush impeached or losing re-election, its doubtful any of Obama's cabinet can... with the lone exception of Hillary.
Maybe, but the key is to win the burbs on big enough numbers to offset the city and I just don't see it happening... Ryan won because Edgar was insanely popular... Edgar was successful because he came off as a moderate GOPer. I think the GOP bench is a ways away from challenging for Governor... Topenka was their last person at that level, now they need to refill.
Kirk could be a Senate possibility, but he doesn't concern me at all... He's not a moderate and the Dems should be able to paint him as a wingnut if he runs.
This seems like one of those no brainer amendments that will pass into law easily... yet for some wierd reason, the senate and house won't approve it.... Don't ask me why... I hope I'm wrong of course.
The other thing that bugs me is that they won't come up with a plan to convert our legal DVDs to video formats to play on handheld devices... the next logical step to real DVD. I applaud FOX (I know I'm shocked too) for the Digitial Download copy included in their new releases but 1) want an option for my old disks and 2) want an option for those not adding that feature. I own the media... I should have the right to play it on any device i want to for my personal use. Its the same BS with OEM software and other facist controlled devices.
