This week Jim gives advice to Steve Beshear and wonders aloud if he’ll put ideas and talk into action. We’re not sure where the St. Ronnie stuff comes from or why it’s relevant, but the rest makes sense.

Now that Steve Beshear has stopped campaigning, he’s going to have to start articulating – about his plans to address serious challenges facing Kentucky’s economy and public schools.
The new governor must successfully transition from campaigning against an unpopular incumbent to working for sound policy that improves the lot of all Kentuckians. That means the interests of labor unions, social liberals and other special groups must become secondary to the betterment of the entire commonwealth.
If not, it will be “four and out” for Beshear, too.
