Franken keynotes Roe v. Wade event
By Andy Birkey, Minnesota Independent - Sen. Al Franken was the keynote speaker at the Roe v. Wade 37th Anniversary Luncheon in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday afternoon. Franken has championed several bills to address reproductive inequalities, including the much talked about “anti-rape amendment.” He’s one of the top recipients of campaign funds from reproductive rights groups.

But his appearance at the event was attacked (predictably) by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, an anti-abortion group.

Ann Coulter is a right-wing conservative puppet with a big mouth. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a moderate Republican talk show host. I am a moderate blogger Democrat. What could we all have in common? It's our belief that Barack Obama missed the boat with his race speech.

Root ahead on Libertarian Lists survey
Third Party Watch - USA - A sampling of 98 Libertarian National Convention delegates suggests that Wayne Allyn Root is currently the frontrunner with respect to the Libertarian Party presidential nomination. Of the 14 candidates tested, Root earned 22.45% of delegate votes. He was followed by Steve Kubby with 14.29% and George Phillies with 10.20%.

Several factors need to be considered, however. With less than a quarter of the delegates, it doesn’t look like (at this time) Root could win the first round of votes at the convention. In this case, second choice preferences become extremely important. A comparison of negatives between the various candidates shows that
