Talking in code.

If state Democrats don't hold on to the governor's office this November--and odds are they won't--here's an F&J suggestion for their next nominee: Condoleezza Rice.

In her speech before the GOP convention last month, the former secretary of state offered a compelling argument for improving the country's education system, which, she said, is in a "crisis" that's "a threat to the very fabric of who we are."

Said Condi: "... today, when I can look at your zip code and I can tell whether you're going to get a good education, can I honestly say it does not matter where you came from? It matters where you are going."

Should sound familiar to the folks in New Hampshire. Actually, those very words could just as well have come out of the mouth of Andy Volinsky, the lead lawyer in the Claremont lawsuit. Which, no doubt you don't need reminding, offers legal proof that zip codes do matter.
