A Few Thoughts

I've been staying away from posting post-election, for the most part, trying to recharge my batteries, but two events I would like to make quick comments on.

1) Washington Governor's Race - After 2.6 million votes, the candidates are 19 votes apart. 19 votes! (See the Settle Times story here.) There is certain to be a recount, so it may be a few more weeks before the people of Washington know who their next governor will be. 19 Votes! Amazing.

2) Condi as Sec. State - Words cannot describe how bad a choice I believe this to be. I have always felt that she is an empty suit, but to think of her as our chief diplomat is . . . well, words escape me.
