Mike Gravel, liberaltarian and reason subscriber (he and his lovely wife Wendy have confirmed this) is the third Democrat who'll appear on most Super Tuesday ballots. Until 1980, he was a senator from Alaska, so I wondered whether he'd be trying to score a delegate or two there.
It's a pretty clear sign that what began as a wacky quest to push the National Initiative, then morphed into a quixotic anti-war presidential bid, has morphed again into a wacky quest to push the National Initiative and end the war. Which makes sense. If we got an up-or-down vote on it, we'd probably be out of Iraq. (We would probably also ban smoking and declare that the government planned 9/11, two reasons to be against national initiatives.)
