Three Interesting Items In The News

There are a few items in the news that I find interesting. First, on the potential Mike Bloomberg candidacy, pundits are saying that he'll run as an independent third party candidate for president IF the two candidates likely to be nominated by the two major parties both have "high negatives." Take one guess which candidate from the Democratic Party currently has the highest negatives. Hint: HC. The Republican candidate with the highest negatives is John McCain. Bloomberg will only run if he thinks he can win. His numbers crunchers have been busy figuring the odds and this is what they've come up with.

The second bit of news has to do with Mitt Romney, the I'll say anything to get elected Republican former governor of Massachusetts who has turned on the gay community big time. According to a panelist on Sunday's "Meet The Press" show, Romney, who favors a pardon for convicted liar Scooter Libby, had a "no pardons" policy as Governor, and denied a pardon to a soldier fighting in Iraq who, as a young person, was convicted of some minor charge. The soldier wanted the pardon so that he could apply to be a policeman when he gets home. That's really a nice story about the Mittster, now isn't it?

Finally, Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, says she disagrees with hubby and is fine with full gay marriage equality. Thank you Elizabeth, and get and stay well!
