Weird scenes inside the gold mine!
Former Republican Bob Barr announced today (May 12, 2008) that he will seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party at its upcoming convention - which is only interesting in that it made the KCBS news at least three times today.
Apparently the McCain people fret that Barr is well enough known that he could grab 3 or 5 percent (vs the Libs usual 1/2 percent) and in a close race throw the whole thing to Obama! (Also interestingly, they specify Obama, not Hillary...heh heh.)
This has to be the first time the LP has been mentioned in this way on a main news show ever. Strange political times we are in.
