HDF meeting tonight
I'll be at the Houston Democratic Forum meeting tonight to hear Dr. Richard Murray, Keir Murray, and Heidi Kirkpatrick talk about the new progressive think-tank called the Texas Research Foundation they're organizing. This has been in the works for awhile now, and I'm eager to hear where it now stands. I'll write something up about it tomorrow.

progressive think tank = oxymoron
As always, snrub, your comments bring a unique insight to any conversation.
Sounds like a front for the Chris Bell campaign to me.
Dick Murray, 2003 "I think Hubert Vo has the best chance of upsetting an incumbent in Harris County."
Right wing hacks: no way, Heflin has more cash and has been there forever!
Students of Dick Murray: wow, Hubert must really have a shot.
Result: add one fat white guy to the unemployment line.
Dr. Murray is smarter, friendlier, and more respected than any other political pundit in Houston. I love it that folks would scoff who probably have no idea who he is.
He's a winner; this is the best news for Democrats in Texas since Bill White (of whom the right wing hacks will still moan about, meanwhile 70% of Houstonians support him).
