Better late than never

Posted By on Tue, Sep 9, 2008 at 4:00 PM

The Obama campaign will open an Arkansas campaign office at noon Saturday at 112 W. 7th St., North Little Rock. Contact: Susan Carroll 744-0241.

What are you thinking right now? 41 percent?

Not that the state is devoid of enthusiasm.

Barack-o-billies for Obama will have a fund-raiser next Tuesday at Vino's featuring beer, pizza and "rockabilly/honky-tonk legends Rosie Flores and James Intveld."

Not a good day for enthusiasm if you were ever a believer in the Obama 50-state (50-caucus was more like it) strategy. He's down by 20 in North Carolina.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
