I have now seen my first two bumper stickers for the 2008 campaign. One for "Hillary" (ie Mrs. Bill Clinton --- we've decided to adopt Rush's formulation). One for "Mitt."
You know, I understand very well why Mrs. Bill Clinton wants to stay as far away from her last name (unless she's in a Black church) as she possibly can. Other than some strange notion of informality though, I don't understand why Mitt Romney wants to use Mitt. Yeah, we're a very informal society, but I just don't see the purpose in that. I'm sure it will be "Rudy" too. Probably not "John" since both McCain and Edwards* could lay claim to that.
