Amos, that is an incredible article. I wonder if anyone emailed it to camp Clinton. Whew!
Don, "Maybe the New Mexico Democratic Party needs to check a good dictionary." HA! I nearly busted a gut on that one! I orter send that quote to his highness the exalted King of Richardson.
New Mexico is a strange and wonderful state. We seem to like to alternate governors, going from a wacked out lefty like Toney Anaya to "Gov. Veto" - the last Repub. governor whose name completely escapes me right now, but who was elected to two terms. Now Richardson, and if the trend continues we will go back to a Repub. when its time to change the linens in Santa Fe.
Likewise, we typically keep our senatorial delegation to one Dem. and one Repub. That will probably change this year, if the Dem. presidential candidate has long enough coat tails. Sen. Domenici was a favorite of both parties for a long time - Dems may discount that statement, but they never really mounted much of a charge against him.
Locally, however, the Democrats meet in a huge conference room and the Republicans meet in a broom closet. The Democrats have it exactly as they want it, and no dictionary is going to change anything.
Here is one sure fire prediction: the rest of the nation will know within hours of the closing of the polls on election night in Nov. which presidential candidate won the electoral votes from their state. For New Mexico it will be days, if not weeks. I guarantee it.
