Oliver has finally found a Democratic candidate that he thinks will be a winner for 2006.
The candidate, of course, is John Doe.
Which, I guess, when you stop giggling, makes sense, considering an “unnamed Democrat” was running neck and neck with Bush in 2003.
In all seriousness, if Democrats want a path to victory, they should really be looking at people like the Democratic Governor of my state, Joe Manchin, who I will probably vote for again in 2008. I am a little upset about the cave in to the insurance industry, though.
*** Update ***
For those of you who do not know what the insurance cave-in was, our legislature just passed a bill (signed by Manchin) that ended third-party bad-faith lawsuits, which, I agree, are a problem because they lead to additional lawsuits, fraud, increased premiums. At the same time, there has to be some way to address comapnies who do deal in bad faith. A lose/lose all around.
