Matter vs. Anti-Matter

MATTER vs. ANTI-MATTER….Presidential polls taken this far ahead of the primaries don’t mean anything. Unlike most people I actually take that seriously, and so far I’ve put my money where my mouth is by refusing to blog about them. Still, it’s faintly unnerving to see just how far ahead of the field Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani are right now.

That would be a hell of a campaign, wouldn’t it? Two New Yorkers, playing out the unfinished grudge match of their 2000 Senate race. A mayor vs. a senator. The first major party female candidate in history. And just possibly the two toughest, most polarizing, most single-mindedly ambitious politicians on the national stage today. I hope we all survive.
