Postman ducks the Prez

Posted by David Postman at 8:45 AM

I'll be taking the day off. Just like Mike McGavick's, my son is graduating from high school this week. I have family in town and that trumps covering the president. (Doesn't that make me sound like a politician?) At least it trumps sitting at Boeing Field for a few hours for a glimpse of Bush, since the press is not going to be allowed anywhere near the event.

I don't know if Democrats will use this opportunity to try to show me as a rubberstamp for Bush scurrying out of town to avoid the comparisons. But if you look at the polls, the press comes out below the president so maybe Bush is just trying to avoid being seen with me.

Groen v. Alexander, a difference of more than style

Posted by David Postman at 7:50 AM

My column today is about the Supreme Court race between Chief Justice Gerry Alexander and challenger John Groen. To really get a good flavor of their different approaches here are transcripts of the speeches they gave at the state Republican convention.

You can also watch or listen to them at TVW. Groen is about 33 minutes in on the file, and Alexander is at about 1:03.
