Looking Forward

I just passed 100 posts to this blog in just over 3 months since I started it. It was fun to see that. Despite that milestone I still feel like I am developing a feel for where this blog will go.

I have noticed that I enjoy writing politically oriented content when I find news of a political nature. Maybe that is because I am interested in a wide range of political topics and in political participation in general. With the official announcement today that Tom Vilsack would seek the Democratic presidential nomination for 2008, I have decided on one thing I will be doing with this blog in the future. I have decided that, for each person who announces their candidacy officially, I will research the candidate and make an endorsement for every candidate who I feel would make a good president. These endorsements will not indicate who I will be voting for (that has not been decided yet) but will indicate who I think deserves votes.

I will do this for any candidate who is running (not those who look like they will run) from any party so long as my research indicates that they could be a good president. In other words, don’t expect to hear anything about the likes of General Zod.

Look for my endorsement, or anti-endorsement if I think they would not be a good president, on any candidate I hear about within a week of when I learn of their official candidacy. If you hear about a candidate that I have not yet listed please let me know.

  1. Since I am in the mid-west, I would be interested in your opinion of Sam Brownback and of Barak Obama. (I have opinions about each, but I’m curious about what you think.)

  2. David says:

    No problem. Sam Brownback has filed as a candidate with the FEC so I will have an endorsement for him soon (I’m a little behind) and I have little doubt that Barak Obama will declare his candidacy in the next few weeks so I will cover him then.

    I’m a little behind right now on the candidates who have filed with the FEC – I have at least three endorsements to do.
