Unity08 Third party initiative

Third party forming over the internet, from KCBuzzblog, the KC Star’s politics blog:

A bipartisan group of political organizers launched a new group today called Unity08.com, an effort to redesign the system for nominating White House candidates. The Internet-based third party is headed up by former Carter chief of staff Hamilton Jordan, former Carter communications director Gerald Rafshoon and Hotline founder Doug Bailey. They boast they are being joined by a collection of young people.

 Newsweek‘s Jonathan Alter reports that the Unity08 plan calls for an online third-party convention.

Looking at who’s forming it (Carterites,) you have to wonder if they will play the Nader in 08.  You know all of the KOS kids will come play at the electronic convention.

100th post, and some administrivia

I just got back from vacation so I have a lot of ground to recover here at work and won’t be posting a lot today. However I did go through and flag all the immigration articles with that tag, you can pull them all up on one page by clicking on ‘”immigration” under the categories box to the right.

While I was gone I won an award, and I don’t know what that’s about yet, it’s an SOB award — is that good or bad? I will look into it tonight & see what’s up.
