What Beshear could learn from Sarah Palin

Early this year, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin implemented Alaska's Checkbook Online program through her Department of Administration. It is more comprehensive than that proposed by Kentucky Rep. Jim DeCesare last year or the one he has already filed for next year.

If Beshear wants to hurry up making good on his campaign promise to make Kentucky government spending less secretive to help cut down on corruption, perhaps he should follow the example of Sen. John McCain's vice-presidential pick.

Good point. I'd rather have a VP who understands the issues and has a few accomplishments than one who has spend thirty five years displaying ignorance and duplicity in the U.S. Senate.

I'm talking about Biden.

I'm glad to see you stay on top of transparency for Kentucky. Keep it up!

There is a big difference between people that talk a good game and people that play a good game. Beshear is all talk. Significant progress could have been made already by Beshear in transparency if he really wanted to have Kentucky government more transparent. A high percentage of what could be made transparent isn't controversial.
