All Five

Is it possible that New Mexico will have an entirely Democratic delegation in our nations Capitol? I have always been afraid of saying there was a possibility and then looking like a fool. (I have looked foolish many times)

Now, I think there is a better that 50/50 chance that it will happen. The Republicans pulling out their TV money in New Mexico is most likely a deal killer for Darren White. Down south Harry Teague just keeps putting his own personal fortune into the campaign and that may well kill off Tinsley's chances.

Tom Udall is a lock. So is Ben Ray Lujan. Bingaman is there already. It could happen! Of course, there are pitfalls in that things better get fixed pretty quick or all of the Dems are in trouble.

I really hope that we get 60 Democrat Senators, even if a few of them are the so called 'blue dog democrats.' This will at least end the paralysis in that chamber.

We are really living in interesting times. Global financial meltdown, climate change, war, religious fanatics running around, and the possibility that we may end up with an intelligent and thoughtful President in Barack Obama.

And now a little humor sent to me by my sister Carlota. New definitions for old words in these times.

CASH FLOW -- The movement your money makes as it disappears down the toilet.

YAHOO -- What you yell after selling it to some poor sucker for $240 per share.

All 5 - Then Heinrich better get some more help right now. In my precinct he has the lowest recognition (14% lower than Obama.) The White negative ads are misleading and the margin is slim. Any bloggers who haven't actually gotten out and canvassed, please do so. You can make a difference NOW.
