Shields and Brooks on Americans Elect Folding, Preakness Predictions

In this week’s Doubleheader, syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks discuss the end of two campaigns.

For our sport of politics section, we talked about Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s strategic shift — relaying from presidential primaries to amassing delegates. Will he get a speaking slot at the convention? Mark and David aren’t so sure.

Also up for debate: the Americans Elect effort calling it quits.

In our politics of sport section, David showed us his iPhone shot of commencement ceremonies at Yankee Stadium, but confessed he stayed true to form and wore his Mets cap.

We also took turns predicting the outcome of this weekend’s Preakness Stakes race in Baltimore. The Doubleheader is on hiatus next week, but tune in June 1 so we can see if Mark and I were right to bet on Daddy Nose Best.
