End of the week....

NY Sen. Hillary Clinton had some interesting remarks while campaigning in New Hampshire. According to the frontrunner in the Democratic field, if terrorists strike the United States anytime between now and next year's election, it would probably benefit Republicans.

She also said that among the Democrats, she was best suited to deal with just such a situation.

CT Sen. Chris Dodd had this to say about her comments:

"Frankly, I find it tasteless to discuss political implications when talking about a potential terrorist attack on the United States."

On other Hartford the Senate has picked the six among themselves who will investigate Sen. Lou DeLuca and his problems over asking someone under federal investiation to beat up the boyfriend of his granddaughter who he thought was being abused.

No word on any breakthough in negotiations on the state's bonding package - meaning those awaiting state payment for school construction projects will be waiting a bit longer - the check is NOT in the mail...

And an amusing tidbit from one of the national polls. Likely Republican voters win the early voting states (Iowa, NH, Nevada, SC and Florida) were asked how well they understood the health care proposals by the Republican presidential candidates - including the yet-unannounced candidate Fred Thompson. Seemsanywhere from 15 to 29 percent of those responding in each state said they were familiar with Thompson's health care plan.

It's amusing because Thompson hasn't proposed a health care plan yet.

Have a good weekend....

Clinton is right on both counts.

It would benefit the Republicans and frankly among the Democrat field she is the one and only one who takes terrorism seriously.

Dodd has no business running for President if he can’t handle the harsh realities.

Clinton has earned the nomination of her party by default.

What cracks me up about the Democrats in the legislature regarding their latest witch hunt (Lou DeLuca) is that they NEVER suggest doing this when a Democratic legislator has done far worse or is serving prison time while still in office.

This is the epitome of hypocrisy.

It's up to the VOTERS of the 32nd Senate district to determine who they want as their Senator, not Don Williams & company.

That’s right Bill.

Where were all these do-gooders when Jefferson Davis was up on charges he abused his son? The would-be nominees that year for his seat were perfectly willing to step aside if Davis decided to run.

Democrat-Davis was allowed to serve out almost his entire term. Democrat-Davis only resigned after the session of his 2nd year was over.

Never before has any accused child molester had better press than Jefferson Davis with the Bulletin.

That said, I do think that Lou should resign. Republicans have one set of standards whereas the Democrats and their willing allies in the press have several.
