Unfortunately for pundits like me, there is no such thing as quality control. We predict things with the most serene condidence and, when proven dead wrong, sail on to the next issue, unchastened and unapologetic.Well, I would like to take a turn eating humble pie about my wrong predictions for this past election. I wrote, nine days before the election, that "the passionate conservatives -- (Rick) Santorum, Jeb Bush, John Kyl and many others will not suffer [Mitt] Romney's fate. Oliver North will win by a comfortable margin -- the quaking of liberal Republicans notwithstanding."

WASHINGTON -- As the California governor's race goes, so goes the 1990 election.That Republican claim sounds like a ploy to delay any downbeat analysis until most of the country is asleep in bed tomorrow. But there may be something to it.For one thing, capturing California, the biggest prize of 1990, would mean that the year was not a total loss for the party that grabs it. For another, winning California might be necessary to prevent a GOP wipeout in three key Sun Belt gubernatorial contests.

LAKE WORTH, Fla. -- They all laughed last April when former Sen. Lawton Chiles, declaring his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for governor, announced that he would limit contributions to his campaign to $100.Florida is the nation's fourth most populous state. It has eight media markets, and television advertising -- the life blood of politics today -- is expensive. Moreover, Gov. Bob Martinez, the embattled but combative Republican incumbent, could be counted on to raise and spend $6 million or $8 million or whatever it took.

Jeanie Austin,66, co-chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1989 to 1992, died Saturday in Orlando, Fla., two weeks after she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Second in power and influence to fellow co-chairman Lee Atwater during the Bush administration, she was a tireless party builder, traveling around the country and urging working people -- especially women -- to vote Republican. In 1984, she launched an improbable bid to become chairman of the party in Florida. Under her leadership, Republican voter registration climbed from 36 percent to 42 percent, Bob Martinez became the first Republican elected governor in 20 years and Connie Mack won the U.S. Senate seat held for 18 years by Democrat Lawton Chiles.
