Another Live Blog Coming Up (UPDATED: It’s Live) (UPDATED AGAIN: Closed)

Filed under: 2008 Election — Patterico @ 8:00 pm



I’m addicted to that live-blog widget. I’m going to start another live blog/chat here at 8:30 – 8:45 p.m.

UPDATE: Ah, heck, let’s just start it now. I may be gone from time to time, but I think there’s a way to deal with that. Here we go:

UPDATE x2: We’re done. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was fun. We’ll definitely do this again.

  2. That was fun, and it’s still there (at least for a while; click “RePlay”.)

  3. Here is a VP analysis from the Spectator’s Quin Hillyer on why MN Governor Tim Pawlenty would make a good VP choice:

    “Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty: Right now the betting favorite, Pawlenty seems to be an ideal choice. Minnesota is an incredibly important target for Republicans, as it keeps creeping ever closer to voting for a GOP presidential candidate, and as the upper Midwest as a whole (including Iowa and Wisconsin) is probably the largest contiguous swath of 50-50 battleground states in the country. Popular with Evangelicals and by most (but not all) lights a solid fiscal conservative as well, Pawlenty seems able to keep conservatives happy while presenting a friendly persona. On the downside, though, he won both of his races for governor with less than 50 percent of the vote; he has no significant experience outside of politics, and there is something about him on TV that seems a bit too lightweight.”

    This doesn’t sound very convincing. Overall, Pawlenty’s benefits seem to be that he puts MN in play and he balances McCain’s “tense” personality. That sounds even less convincing.

    The link also discusses former California Rep. and SEC Chairman Chris Cox. He sounds like a better choice but I’d like to know more about him.
