Posting History for JMS
|I'm close to giving up on everyone-rant of an angry moderate
By way of introduction, I have a pretty low ID number. I used to comment a lot. Wrote a diary or two. I have been avoiding commenting or even reading much in the midst of the HCR debates. It was too ...
|New Yorker article on health care costs
Apologies if this has been diaried already, but I was a little surprised not to see it mentioned yet. In the latest edition of the New Yorker, Atul Gawande has written a piece under the "Annals of ...
|I am not the target demographic for McCain's VP pick either
Earlier this week, I wrote this diary about my gut level disappointment that Obama hadn't picked a female VP. So, McCain ...
|I am not the target demographic for Obama's VP selection
When I read this comment in Jack and Jill politics, I smiled to myself a little--a bittersweet smile of recognition. True, in ...
|How will Obama disappoint me today?
A few weeks ago, I made a comment to the effect that "Obama supporters know he's not the Messiah, and that he'll do or say things they disagree with, but they are Ok with that". Color me naive or ...
|In which I say, "Oh for goodness sake" again
So, Obama called into the WIP sports show in Philadelphia--he answered some questions, impressed the hosts, and all seemed to be well. Until...
|The Myth of Mondale v Hart
I've encountered the idea that in 1984, Gary Hart had more pledged delegates, but Mondale won because he had more superdelegates. I just want to be clear that this is untrue and shouldn't be used to ...
|I'm supporting Obama...finally
If you've paid attention to my comments, the title of this diary may not make much sense. Obviously, JMS is for Obama, right? Well sure, at first a little reluctantly (I had not intended to support ...
|2004 to 2008 presidential primary candidate support
We have polls and we have polls. Boy do we have polls. I haven't seen this particular navel gazing poll, though, so I thought I'd put it out there. Here's the premise. Who did you support in the ...
|There will be a Democratic President in 2009
I know there is a history of snatching defeat out the jaws of victory here. After a few elections of feeling good and predicting victory, only to see the victory fade away, a number of us were gun ...
|The HRC woman voter poll
Hillary Clinton is popular among female Democratic voters. The polls say so. And yet, don't we all have anecdotal evidence otherwise? (Perhaps some of us ARE anecdotal evidence otherwise). I'm ...
|Marathon, not a sprint
There has been a lot of disappointment, resentment, and perhaps even a bit of defection going on here lately over the latest development in the Democrats' and Bush's battle over Iraq. Yes, it's ...
|Time off survey
I was intrigued by this discussion comparing GOVERNMENT MANDATED paid time off for (I assume) full time ...
|Rudy's pro-choice now, again
I saw this tid-bit in the New York Times today. So, after being confronted with his past contributions to planned ...
|Who's your candidate?
I've noticed as I read various Dem primary threads that certain usual suspects show up time after time, rather obviously supporting one candidate or another. This can be interesting information to ...
|Whither gun control?
It seemed almost inevitable in the wake of the VT shootings that the topic of gun control would emerge again. Some have said that a tragedy of this sort should not be an excuse for debating politics ...
|Most Ridiculous and Most Dangerous (w/poll)
It's a slow day for me, so I've been amused by the proliferation of "Ridiculous and Dangerous" Diaries. I think we've hit critical mass. Time to take the poll.
