Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Tuesday, July 06, 2004

Tuesday July 6, 2004. I awoke to news of a political decision which I suspect had actually been taken months earlier. John Kerry, Democratic not-yet-official Presidential candidate, announced the choice of John Edwards as his running mate.

What about Kerry's approaches to John McCain? My suspicion is, Kerry knew McCain would turn down the chance to run on the "wrong" party's ticket. And he didn't particularly want McCain. But there were enough people who thought McCain would be the perfect Vice-Presidential candidate for there to be mileage in being seen to make a good-faith effort to recruit McCain.

***I went crosstown to Uptown, where I returned books at the Walker Library and took out a few more.

On to Steeple People thrift store, then across the street to the Wedge. Then along Franklin Avenue to the Franklin Avenue Station, where I took the LRT to the 38th Street Station.

Almost half the passengers were dressed for business. Men in suits and ties, both of which looked reasonably expensive; a woman in equivalent clothing, marking up a printout.

Near 38th Street Station is So Low Grocery Outlet. There was at least one real bargain which I wasn't able to take advantage of: twenty pounds of potatoes for $1.88 is more than I can store properly, or use up quickly.

"Well Met, Well Met, My Own True Love" -- Rewrote one zero-drafted scene; I think that's been a bottleneck.

"They Might Be Windmills" --

"History Line" --

Some Star Tribune letter-writers will see this as evidence of rightwing bias; others as evidence of leftwing bias.
