Idusogie on Hatch....

Hatch: Dancing Around The Issues Or Principled Responses?
•Says calling a Special Session is not a yes or no proposition
•Will abide by endorsement process depending upon caucus turnout.
--Inside Minnesota Politics

Hmm. For one thing, I'm not sure how that copy+paste from Inside Minnesota Politics' email blast is going to affect the look of the page once I post, so be warned. For another.....has anyone noticed that the acronym is IMP?

Way too early to be in the office. Anyway.

Depending on caucus turnout? So this means that if every Democrat in the state goes to their caucus, Mr. Hatch will abide by the endorsement? Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. With only a grain of intra-party partisan sentiment, there's already a candidate in the race who will abide by the endorsement no matter what because he believes a united DFL can bring business interests onboard to beat Tim Pawlenty.

In a related issue, to be fair to Bud Philbrook, he did what he wanted to do, and it simply didn't raise enough money. Staying away from large-dollar donations is a laudable goal, but with this many solid candidates in the race it was not going to get him anywhere. He had been getting his name and message out for a while before his announcement 20-some-odd days ago, it just didn't take hold for whatever reason. I believe Mr. Philbrook will continue to have a positive impact on the world through his non-profit organization.

Or he might pull a Kelly Doran and run for Senate. You never know in this game.

I think one thing that Mike left out at the end of his speech was that we all have a great opportunity to vomit, together.

... but I guess you won't really understand that unless you were at the announcment speech.

He didn't get me to riled up to support him, but I am interested to hear what other people thought.
