I will be interviewing Tom Campbell tonight starting at 6:15PM.
The interview is done. Click on continue reading to see Tom Campbell's answers to my questions. Leave a comment with your opinion on the issues I brought up, his answers, of the campaign for governor. We had originally scheduled this for another date, but something came up in Tom Campbell's schedule and he was able to do it tonight. I have a bunch of entries to catch up with but interviewing someone I admire took precedent.
I am not sure who I will support for governor in 2010. I would be inclined to support a Democrat but if none of them offer up a platform that addresses our current problems and is innovative in their solutions I might support Tom Campbell. His depth of understanding of the issues impresses me. But with so much time between now and the next election we have the luxury of sitting back and analyzing the arguments the candidates put forth.

Tom, thanks for taking time out of your schedule to answer questions. I have admired your distinguished career and eclectic mix of policy views for years. Your background in law, economics, and as a legislator is a background I would welcome in a governor.
Your recent editorial in Reason Magazine triggered my request for this interview. Which brings me to my first questions:
What magazines, blogs, or radio shows do you follow?
What were some of the most recent books that you have read related to economics, politics, or history?
What authors or books created such an impression on you that you want to recommend them to younger people just starting to form their political ideology?
