Cellphone Tracking W/O Probable Cause

Story here. It is being used for routine crime and who knows what, not just to track terrorists. I also understand they are data-mining millions of calls. The government made the cell phone folks put in stuff to track people by their phones, now the companies are trying to make a buck off of it by selling a "know where your children are" service.

Rick,
I may end up having to deliver on that cookie after all.
What do you make of the Zogby poll showwing Hillary losing to ALL of the GOP candidates? And Wait..... Who beats her by the biggest margin?? HUCKABEE-44% to 39%. Rudy scored next to the lowest-43% to 40%.
There goes the whole "electablity" arguement for him.

c.b.,

Your right. Huckabee is making a strong showing. I really don't see him getting traction past Iowa. With all the primaries close together I believe it will be hard to carry momentum past Iowa.

I am taking another look at McCain. He would probably do the best in the general. It is really getting interesting. This is the first time ever I can't make my mind up early. I think thats because we just don't have a great set of candidates.

Now, I thought the Rudy thing was electability against Hillary..... I for one certainly wouldn't solely base my choice on whether a candidate was the favorite to win the primary. I'm gonna support the person that meets my criteria. If they lose the primary then I will go from there.

As for Huck's chances;
1. State by state-
He's tied in Iowa(winning it is not only possible but looking likely) & N.H. is a county in Iowa(an Iowa win normally scrambles whatever numbers existed before). There is no scientific explanation for momentum, but it is absolutely real. IF...IF he gets it going, Look out!

2. Nationally-
He is now tied at 2nd & 3rd in many national polls. Granted, Rudy is way out front with near 30% & the others come in with 15% or less apiece, but I am starting to wonder if Rudy has maxed out & the other 70% is the anti-Guiliani vote(after all he is the most known quantity outside of McCain).
I think what we will see is most of the other 70% will migrate to one of the other more conservative candidates. Who, will depend on what happens in the first few states.

c.b.,

Since I don't like any of the candidates I can easily pick the one who I believe has the best shot at winning the general election.

The Huckster is certainly opening up some opportunities for himself with this good showing.
If Huck wins Iowa do you think this would force Thompson out shortly after and if so does that help Romney or Huckabee the most?
We could see a Romney/Huckabee ticket.
