Commentary participated in Cin’s annual “Pre-Election Analysis Luncheon” yesterday where 120 or so “H-Town players” listened to what Sonny Messiah Jiles, Bob Stein, Jessica Colon, and Commentary had to say about the upcoming election. About the only no-show yesterday was Pam-In-Charge who was a little under the weather. Margaret Menger did a great job of moving the discussion along. This is the first time I really interacted with GOP’s Jessica. She is pretty good and very nice but she would probably snatch my political lunch away from me if I wasn’t looking.

During the pre luncheon chit chat, I came away with the impression that a lot of folks there still aren’t ready to predict who will be H-Town’s next mayor. I think I said that yesterday. Rice’s Stein said that voter turnout would be in the 25% to 30% range. Commentary said that it would not be a surprise if so called third party expenditures were made in the next week or so to help “define” CM Peter Brown, Controller Annise Parker, and Gene Locke particularly among Westside voters. GOP’s Jessica said yesterday that Hutch’s chances looked good against Guv Dude.

Speaking of, he’s not having a good week. He lost the Farm Bureau endorsement to Hutch and he’s not going to get to build a Katy Freeway down the middle of the Lone Star State.

Hats off to H-Town’s Mayor for stepping away from letting the city get into the ICE business.  Check out the story in today’s Chron.  Way to go Mayor!

Commentary only got to sneak a peak at yesterday’s epic win for the Twins as the ‘Stros made their first off season move by letting Brian Moehler know that he’s welcome to come back in 2010. TBS will push CNN aside as the MLB Playoffs take center stage today.
