Rick Santorum – “Game On!”
Santorum succeeded in the Iowa Caucus with a positive and old-school campaign. He visited all 99 counties in Iowa and met with people on the ground in cafes and town halls. While Iowa is not a predictor of the eventual nominee, Santorum’s success is significant because it shows that Santorum is able to organize on the ground with limited money. Imagine what Santorum can do in | Read More »
Marrying Rick Santorum
Choosing a political candidate is similar to dating. There are men with whom you flirt. There are men who you date. And then there are the men who are so exceptional that you take them home to meet the parents. Women learn the difference between these kinds of men with varying speed.

After reading Lou Cannon’s “A Role of a Lifetime”, I spent the next 10 years searching for another Ronald Reagan in every candidate for public office. Then, I grew up.

Perry Edges out Romney in Republican Debate
MSNBC started off the debate on Wednesday night encouraging infighting between the candidates. While Fox News did the same in the previous debate, MSNBC targeted most of their questions primarily at the frontrunners – Perry and Romney.
