This week, Larry Kudlow and Tim Pawlenty analyze the results from the New Hampshire primary and do some future-izing on what it means for the race at large. Is Kasich viable? Is Rubio wounded? Is Christie New Jersey bound? (update: yes) Also, Bernie Sanders supporters have an unusual drinking game.

    W. suggested unlimited contribution/immediate and full disclosure in 2000 which may or may not have had something to do with running against John McCain who was air-quoting the Constitution at the time.  Somehow the idea never seems to catch fire.  Hard to compete with the chance to write an even more ineffective law than the last 37 attempts at it or “fix”  the 1st Amendment good and proper.  (And in “fairness,”  it doesn’t “solve” the Citizens United “problem” either.)

    I wholeheartedly supported the unlimited contribution/immediate and full disclosure model until the gay marriage debate in California.  I realize that was a particularly fast moving and contentious issue, but the idea that one’s contributions and free speech are subject to the whims of the mob gives me pause.  One day, you donate to a campaign.  Another day, your name is now on a list of wrong thinking people who need to be driven out their jobs.

    I am willing to hear more about money in politics, but any discussion would have to acknowledge and address these realities.  I was disappointed the conversation didn’t move that far on the podcast.  Hopefully next time it will.
