    Re: long odds

    Kent, I’d add only one item to your scenario. Memorial Day — Arm in arm, John Edwards and John McCain attend Memorial Day ceremonies together, in Ohio or Florida. The media will lap it up and the two Johns both get what they want: the spotlight and breathless speculation about…

    Long Odds.

    “What if” discussions are rarely worth the effort. Too many ponderables and too few facts. But they are the mainstay of political water cooler discussions…and what good is a blog if it doesn’t stir the discussion a bit. Consider the following What If scenario: Late April — Senator John Edwards…

    A society more horrified by inconvenience than infanticide

    That is what brings us to the situation where a mother refuses a Caesarian section to save her unborn twin, who died as a result. She is rightly being charged with murder. Depraved indifference indeed. But listen to what she said. “I would rather lose one of the babies…
