Good News for Hillary

And, frankly, for the Republicans. Mark Warner, moderate Democrat and former Governor of Virginia, has decided not to run for President.

An attractive Southerner with more middle-of-the-road views than most Dems, it seemed possible that Warner could have caused some pretty severe political headaches -- not only for his Democratic competition like Hillary, but also for the GOP had he won the nomination.

It seemed that he was taking all the steps to undertake a presidential run, so it's not clear (for now) what changed his mind.

It seems there is a new development that is supposed to change the outcome of the elections every hour. What is a poor voter to make of it all?

I have to assume there is an overriding issue that eventually sways them. As it did in 2000, 2002, and 2004, security. Without security there will be no need for a minimum wage hike, universal health care, more working level jobs, or whatever the Dems call jobs these days, ya da ya da.

To which the Dems reply, Security? We don't need no stinkin security. We need a minimum wage hike.

Guess who is going to win the election this year? And every year forward.

Somebody ought to do a cartoon. Show these two eyes glowing out from the depths of a cave. The caption would be, "We still need a minimum wage hike." Something like that.
