The more stringent conservative is running for NY’s senate seat today, but the fact remains – what kind of change does he spell for the GOP? Some? A little? A lot? None? It’s coupled with the Florida and Virginia governors races, but I really think this one election will tell the GOP what the regular Republicans want. It’s the fence-sitting, more moderate Repubs that will make a difference. And tell me if its even worth watching the party with any hope.
Iran is in an interesting position, and one we should all pay attention to. Civil unrest always speaks of a regime change in countries in the Middle East, mostly because the religious leaders require the support of the people to keep it together. Without religious leaders backing the current regime 100%, it usually falls to the opposition. This could be Iran’s chance for change.
