Hope ya'll had a happy Easter.
Let's see. What's in the news today? Another Republican crashes and burns in a corruption scandal (this one would be former governor George Ryan of Illinois, who was convicted of trading state contracts in exchange for presents and cash for himself, family, and friends). Republicansd have always been a slippery bunch in Steanso's opinion, but the corruption that we've seen coming to light in the last couple of years has begun to reach almost epidemic proportions.
Here's something that Steanso is worried about, although it has no real bearing on any particular news event of the day. Steanso is worried that the Democratic nominee for the next presidential election will be Hillary Clinton. Steanso has no particularly negative feelings about Hillary, personally, but Steanso believes that Hillary rubs a lot of people the wrong way, and that she is particularly grating to many conservatives. The Democrats need to seize votes from a lot of middle-of-the-road swing voters. and for whatever reason, I think that Hillary jusr irks a lot of non-democrats (I think a lot of people are repelled by what they see as naked ambition on Hillary's part, especially the more conservative types who were annoyed with the active, involved role that she took within her husband's administration, her willingness to stay married to Bill after the Lewinsky debacle, and the fact that she successfully ran for the U.S. Senate in New York, despite the fact that she was not a native New Yorker). Anyway, I think that the most surefire way for the Democrats to throw away their chances during the next presidential election would be to run Hillary for president. She's too devisive.
Oh well. We've got mid term elections to worry about first, and those elections could change the entire nation's political landscape long before we get to the presidential election.
