From Brookings comes a new, must-read book:

Opportunity 08: Independent Ideas for America’s Next President

New Brookings Book Focuses on Critical Issues Facing the Nation

Opportunity 08: Independent Ideas for America’s Next President offers innovative solutions to the issues facing the 2008 Presidential candidates, presented in 5,000 word essays that provide a concise, yet thoughtful, overview of how to tackle pressing policy challenges. Part One of the book focuses on “Our World” and its topics include the challenge of dealing with Iran, the rise of China, climate change, oil dependence, Middle East peace and the future of Iraq. Part Two, “Our Society,” takes a look at key domestic issues such as housing policy, poverty, inequality, upward economic mobility and voting reform. Part Three, “Our Prosperity,” tackles vexing problems such as the budget deficit, health care access and quality, retirement security, and the challenge of strengthening information technology in the United States.

The editor of Opportunity 08: Independent Ideas for America’s Next President, Michael E. O’Hanlon, is a senior fellow in Foreign Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution. He is a frequent media commentator on national security and is the author or coauthor of numerous books, including Defense Strategy for the Post-Saddam Era; Hard Power: The New Politics of National Security; and A War Like No Other: The Truth about China’s Challenge to America.

I figured (from the first line of the quote) that this would be a comment on the media's love for "independent" politicians (like Bloomberg) whose "independence" usually can be read as "fiscally-moderate non-Democratic liberal". But it's good to see this line:

"...America’s Next President, Michael E. O’Hanlon,"

Joe Lieberman for VP (again).

Brookings has no shame. Is anyone going to read this thing? Besides maybe Hillary and her lackeys?

Wow The Hill is really taking a slagging on the InnerTubes lately. Folks just don't seem to want what Bush-in-a-Dress is selling.

Funny that.


I'm down with Kucinich/Paul 08!

Do those stupid gold spam posts show up whenever someone mentions Ron Paul? Or am I just imagining things?
