Last month McAdams, who was the Democratic Party nominee in the 2010 Alaska U.S. Senate race, formed a political action committee called It's About Alaska:
McAdams has filed paperwork with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, establishing the group It's About Alaska. The group's stated purpose is to support candidates who "commit to putting Alaska's people and communities ahead of non-Alaskan special interests as elected leaders." It seeks to have influence on next year's elections.Scott ran a very controlled U.S. Senate campaign in 2010. He came in 3rd in votes, but first in honesty. He learned a lot, and may be a cinch for my party's nomination to fight against Don Young next year. Even if Diane Benson, the Democrat I most admire, announces another run against Don, I might back Scott in the primary.
I was a bit shocked to hear Scott state on Shannyn's program - just before the 1:00 p.m. break - that (I am paraphrasing here) Obama has destroyed the hopes of a generation of Democrats. When the podcast of that show segment is posted, I will transcribe the entire segment for accuracy and more detail.
Watching Obama's team destroy any hopes of CO2 emission progress coming out of the UN Durban conference this week, one might even take this further: Obama, by forfeiting US leadership in meaningful climate change action, is dooming billions of people yet to be born.
George W. Bush must be green with envy.
