I'm going to make a prediction and this is going out on a limb. Howard Dean will come back and win the New Hampshire Primary, with Kerry finishing second and Clark third with John Edwards a distant fourth. This will mark the end of Joe Lieberman's campaign while the two other also-rans (Sharpton and Kucinich) will be in it until the very end.

I read an interesting e-mail from 1996 and 2000 Libertarian Candidate Harry Browne offering a class on libertarian persuassion. This man has run two presidential campaigns and has yet to get 0.5% of the vote. What can he teach about pursusassion?

Everyone's talking about Googling people, has anyone tried amazoning them. As part of Amazon's search, when searching for a name it pulls up books that mention the name you search for. I tried for Alan Keyes and found that whenever Keyes is mentioned it is invariably for the failed campaign of 1996 or the failed campaign of 2000. Alan Dershowitz quotes Keyes extensively in many of his books. He was lesbian activist's Candace Gingrich's least favorite Republican Candidate, as well. (by the way has anyone noticed that with Newt out of power, Candace has faded from the landscape?) A couple people quoted from "Masters of the Dream" in their books. It's amazing how many people will mention Keyes merely to disparage him or because not mentioning him seemed incorrect. Keyes has been devalued in a lot of literature, a surprise to many who think no one's ever heard of him.

Not to be critical, be a WND columnist writes a column about his confrontation with White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. Has he actually read his article? While he asks some difficult questions (such as his recent one on Kwanzaa), he never really pushes hard for an answer and most of the time comes off ridiculously in the transcript. I guess someone has to make a fool out of himself, but he's really not accomplishing anything.
I answered the Highway Man's anti-war song in my latest American Daily column. It's been my most popular column since they began counting hits with 340 readers so far.
