The Real Question - Are Changes Needed?

No matter Ms. Clarey's status as the Governator's Chief of Staff, it seems from the Flashreport that she is set to return, the bigger question following this special election is whether or not sweeping staff changes will be made.

All the writing on the wall indicates that some major changes are imminent --

* Poll numbers in the toilet
* 2006 re-election
* Numerous first term missteps
* Apathy of conservative Republican voters

But who knows. I don't know -- but there are Reeps out there that might.

Either way, the only thing that is clear is that the Governor will not be able to ride his star power to victory in his relect. He will have to show some clearly articulated accomplishments. Time will tell. XO
