NY governor suffers first-term blunders - Balmy weather for Thanksgiving parade - The Tone-Deaf Democrats - Nixon 1968, Clinton 2008 - Thompson: New York is atypical city.



NY governor suffers first-term blunders
Eliot Spitzer: he was once untouchable. Time magazine had named him "Crusader of the Year" when he was attorney general and the tabloids proclaimed him "Eliot Ness."
The low point came two weeks ago when, battered in the polls and amid concerns that he was threatening to unhinge Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential bid, he surrendered on his plan to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.

Balmy weather for Thanksgiving parade
Delighted, shrieking children were barely able to contain themselves Thursday as Barbie rolled past and enormous Shrek and Snoopy balloons floated overhead in the traditional Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Unseasonably balmy weather, with temperatures around 60 degrees, helped draw hordes of families to the parade route to see the floats, helium balloons, marching bands and roller-blading clowns.

The Tone-Deaf Democrats
Senator Christopher Dodd had a nice moment in the Democrats' Las Vegas presidential debate. Wolf Blitzer had crashed through Bill Richardson's blowsy, high-minded disquisition on the need to observe human rights in Pakistan, with the question, "What you're saying, Governor, is that human rights, at times, are more important than American national security?"

Nixon 1968, Clinton 2008
Not so long ago, electability was a one-way ticket to presidential primary election oblivion. The road was littered with "most electable" candidates. Their names were Scranton and Romney, Muskie and Humphrey, Bayh and Connally; to mention but a few.
Today, electability is perhaps the most salient issue for presidential primary voters. It's the issue that catapulted Sen. John Kerry to the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination. It's the issue that keeps afloat the 2008 Giuliani for President Campaign.

Thompson: New York is atypical city
Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson said Friday New York City isn't a model for the rest of the country and that Rudy Giuliani should stop basing his stances on his time as that city's mayor.
Thompson, campaigning at a Lakes Region gun store with stuffed moose and deer overhead, told reporters Giuliani too often turns to his time as New York mayor to explain his support for stronger gun restrictions.
