Hi everyone, I'm Nick. I'm a 20 year-old college student in Washington state, looking to major in political science and minor in finance. I currently attend community college but am planning on transferring to the University of Washington.

Campaign Update

- Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee are at war with each other after Thursday's debate.

- Meanwhile, Thompson has been endorsed by Human Events magazine, one of the most conservative publications in America. On November 13, 2007, Thompson was endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee. That's two major conservative endorsements so far, plus a non-official endorsement from Rush Limbaugh last week. My question is when are conservatives going to give up their Mike Huckabee obsession and realize that Thompson is the candidate that they should be backing?

- John McCain is leading in all Michigan polls but one after his primary win in New Hampshire last week. Romney is right on his heels in most polls while Huckabee sits comfortably in third.

- As Thompson and Huckabee quarrel, McCain and Romney are also taking jabs at one another in Michigan on issues such as the rejuvenation of Michigan's economy. McCain's blasting Romney for being too optimistic, while Romney is blasting McCain for being too pessimistic. The sad thing is that I fear that neither candidate, especially the loser, will much care after January 15th.

- While the media has already written him off for the nomination, Rudy Giuliani is allocating nearly every resource at his disposal to ensure a victory in Florida. Remember, a win in Florida is worth 57 delegates.

- And finally, from the Ron Paul camp comes this story via NPR: "In the 80s and 90s, Paul was involved with newsletters (Ron Paul's Freedom Report, Ron Paul Political Report, The Ron Paul Survival Report) that regularly made racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks. They were first reported by the Houston Chronicle in 1996, and have been circulating around the Internet ever since."

Do us all a favor Ron, drop out already. You're finished.
