Quick Notes – Presidential Politics and Others…

Welcome to another edition of Quick Notes. I am enjoying the "Quick Notes" part of this blog more and more. I find many of you like to comment on the items I probably wouldn't have written a full post about. Keeping that in mind, here are three more topics for your review:


Mitt Romney. Mitt has released his delegates and now endorses McCain. I hate to hear this for a few reasons. First, I am still undecided with regards to McCain. Romney is trying to do the best thing for his party, and what he believes is the best thing for his country. Second, I just started Hugh Hewitt's A Mormon in the White House, and I am pretty sure that Romney won't be our nominee even at a brokered convention this time around. However, keep an eye on him. If he takes the right job between now and 2012, he might be a very strong candidate in the next race. I will be watching him…


The Clintons. While discussing politics the other day with my wife, an odd thought occurred to me. Chelsea Clinton is 29 years old. If her mom should win this election, and become a two term president, guess who is constitutionally eligible to run in the election after that. You got it. We could have 24 years of Clintons instead of 16.


In Other News… The Washington Post has reported that a "long range Russian bomber" buzzed the U.S.S Nimitz. A second bomber circled 50 miles away. The Nimitz scrambled fighters to intercept the Russian bombers. This is one more thing to keep in mind when picking a presidential candidate this season. One more thing to remind us that the Presidential Race isn't the only thing going on in the world.

While reading this post an odd thought occurred to me. At the end of their father's term in office, Barbara and Jenna Bush will be 27. Which means they will be eligible to run against Chelsea in 2016. Not to mention their uncle Jeb, former Governor of Florida. So we could conceivably have 36 years of Bushes in the White House. Not to mention Jeb's kids. And by the time they are out, Barbara and Jenna should have children ready to take the reigns. At this rate we could have the Bush family in the Presidency for the rest of our lives and beyond!

We could only be so lucky.

Familyman, no fair. We all know the way Bush has messed up your scare story is very unlikely, while Andy's original story might happen.

I'm sick of both families. I wish they'd all just go away.
