I had the flu yesterday, so this opening the day is brought to you by uncontrollable shivering. Does anyone else feel like Obama won the fourth game of a seven game series and Clinton is insisting on playing out all seven?
Democrat Don Cazayoux wins a +7 Republican leaning district by two points. This is more of a reason to be optimistic about our chances in November, something I noted about MS-01 as well. Freedom's Watch put in a million to this race, coordinated with the NRCC, and lost. Their messaging doesn't work.
I keep hearing about a candidate, Josh Segall, from Alabama's third district. He started a farmer's market for Alabama farmers in law school. How awesome are farmer's markets?
We take a look at the military buildup, we take a look at the rhetoric, we take a look at the diplomatic posturing, and I would say that it's a virtual guarantee that there will be a limited aerial strike against Iran in the not-so-near future-or not-so-distant future, that focuses on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Command. And if this situation spins further out of control, you would see these aerial strikes expanding to include Iran's nuclear infrastructure and some significant command and control targets.
Obama and Clinton differ on Iran, sort of. She wants to 'completely obliterate' if Israel is attacked with nuclear weapons, he won't say.
Clinton is up in a fairly comfortable lead in Indiana, while North Carolina is close. I get the sense that Clinton has decided to game entirely on going after conservative Democratic voters, using the gimmick of the gas tax holiday, pugilistic foreign policy ideas, and race-baiting. It's unlikely to work, but even if it does, it's the last time we'll see anything like this in the Democratic Party Presidential nomination again in our lifetimes. If there's anything we've learned from this nominating battle, it's that this has basically become a liberal party.
