Last Two Minutes Wins Governor Re-Election

Tricky Dick did his best to avoid answering questions tonight in the third and final debate between Gov. Jennifer Granholm and the Republican Amway heir, Richard DeVos.

But in the last two minutes of the show, where Granholm finally showed off her Democratic credentials -- she stands with the people, not the rich -- she's pro-choice and he's not -- she's for stem cell research and health care for all -- and he's not -- Granholm just won re-election.

Of course, she won the first two debates. She's a Harvard product, his daddy bought him a college. Even Bill Ballenger thought he lost the first debate. Dick did a tad better in the second debate, but she still did better.

But the last two minutes of last night's debate will go down in history as one of the best crafted two minute speeches ever and the delivery was superb. It pushed all the buttons for rank and file Dems, but also reminded the 40% of Republican women who are pro-choice that Republican Dick is way way out there. She reached out to the people and scored.

Can't wait to see next week's poll numbers. Better get into the office early tomorrow. There will be another run on Granholm yard signs.
