On The Road Again

Work brings me to Manchester, New Hampshire this afternoon. As you all know, this is ground zero when it comes to presidential primaries. So I'm up here testing the water to see what my chances are, should I decide to run against Hillary. The way I see it, I have a reasonable chance of success. Heck, I can make promises I have no intention of keeping as well as the best of them (except perhaps for Wet Willy; he was the master at lying through his teeth).

Actually, I've got meetings scheduled here this evening - along with the obligatory consumption of booze - and more meetings tomorrow morning. Then it's off to New York.

Hey. Somebody's gotta do it.

The People Have Spoken

I thought it bizarre that the Democrats in California would defy the will of the people there by passing gay-marriage legislation so soon after the citizenry overwhelmingly rejected the notion. The governor is, thankfully, letting those legislators understand who's in charge:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced yesterday he will veto a bill that would have made California the first state to legalize same-sex marriage through its elected lawmakers.

Schwarzenegger said the legislation, approved Tuesday by legislators, would conflict with the intent of voters when they approved an initiative five years ago preventing California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries. AP (link)

Good for him.
