Life Is Full Of Second Chances...


A thought for those who think their guy (or gal) didn’t do as well as you hoped in the first debate… The next Republican debate is May 15; the next Democratic debate is (right now) June 4 or 5.

I said last night I think Rudy is better than his performance last night. In a little while, we’ll see. A good showing and just about everyone will forget about the first night. Another one like last night, and well… it’ll be a different story.

Also note that Fox News will have the one percent rule in effect, so we may very well have fewer than ten candidates on stage. I certainly won’t mind.
