It’s interesting how much more interested the press seems to be in the Democratic race than in the GOP one. When after Iowa there was tons of attention showered on Barack Obama and nothing on Huckabee, I figured that was just part of the vast pro-McCain conspiracy. But after the media got the McCain victory it was hoping for, there’s still more talk about the Democratic result.
The thing of it is that the Republican race is really much more interesting. It’s a bigger field of semi-viable contenders and it’s very unpredictable. What’s more, there appears to be much more separating the Republican nominees from each other in terms of policy and approach — Mike Huckabee is really, really different from Rudy Giuliani. My feeling has kind of been that I, personally, tend to focus on the Democratic field perhaps a bit more than it deserves because I’m a liberal and I’ve got a mostly liberal audience, but actually it seems that everyone is playing it my way and I’m not really sure why.
