POLITICS: Two New Hampshire Thoughts

*Prediction: the nomination race will, and should, ultimately turn on Michigan on February 7. It's a big state, an industrial state, it's after each region of the country has had a taste of the leading Democrats and the field has narrowed, and -- along with Pennsylvania and Ohio -- it's the core of the states where the November election will be decided.

*Joe Lieberman's declaration that he's got the "Joe-Mentum" is the saddest thing I think I've ever heard from a major candidate. He was on tonight trying to spin 9% of the vote in a state in his native region of the country as something to keep him in the game. I kinda like Lieberman, but . . . it's so, Joe. It's so.

I like Dennis Miller’s comment last night that John Kerry “looks like an Easter Island statue with a power tie.” Of, course, that’s a cheap shot and not a good reason, in and of itself, to oppose him, but it still made me laugh.
