It's tiring but a ton of fun to go door-to-door. When you hear about "grassroots" or "the ground game," you get an appreciation for what that really means. T-minus-3 days until Chesapeake Tuesday and I feel good about the Old Line State.
- If you weren't one of the ten people who watched the speeches at tonight's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Richmond, you missed a doozy. Clinton was good, if subdued, but Obama came out firing. With all of the victories tonight in his pocket by then, he was unusually aggressive and specific. It had some of the language from his Super Tuesday and stump speeches, but it was fiery and attacking. It felt much more like a convention speech than a stump one.
- Not finished yet, but Huck slaughters McCain in Kansas and is leading (so it will be at least close) in Louisiana and Washington. If they hold, those results will be way more shocking than the Dem side tonight.
- You always hear the question, "If you could have dinner with any one person, who would it be?" That answer for me is now clearly Mike Huckabee. I just love the guy to death. I troll the news channels on primary nights, hoping to see a live interview with him. I think it would be fascinating and entertaining to talk with him one-on-one. He's so open and clear about his opinions that it would lead to a great conversation. The problem, at least politically, is that I think a lot of his positions are absolutely insane, specifically when it comes to amending the Constitution. So I could never vote for the guy, but as inspiring as Obama is, I would much rather be in the company of Huck. It's a bit frustrating, but such is life.
