        I have less optimism about the governor's race here than many do.  After all, the people of Michigan were stupid enough to vote for him the first time.

        I think Snyder's re-election will hinge on the EFM in Detroit.  If, as I suspect will happen, we start hearing about the same kind of problems happening in Detroit that we've seen in other cities with Emergency Managers, then I really don't see how Snyder wins.  If, on the other hand, the concerns of myself and others somehow end up being unfounded, I think we have a hard time beating him unless we find a really good candidate, since he'd be able to portray himself as the governor who helped save Detroit.

        As I said, however, my prediction would be that the EM in Detroit will turn out the same as all the others.  I'm just hesitant to say Snyder's toast this far out.

      If the plutocrats begin the program, we will end it. -- Eugene Debs.
