    It seems like we are in

    Presidential limbo land...

    There is a very
    interesting article in this issue of Forbes about
    OXHP.

    It says exactly what I said a long time ago about
    OXHP. Their business model is easily duplicated, and
    others have started taking market share away from them.


    Also, to control costs, they have limited their
    subscribers' options.

    I personally have always believed
    HUM's business model was more viable than
    OXHP's.

    The Forbes article also says OXHP is shrinking
    rapidly, having lost 25% of their subscribers. A lot of
    this was intentional, but a lot was not.

    One
    more interesting point, the article notes that OXHP
    wants to grow, but they are having difficulties doing
    so in their core market. Their stock has increased a
    lot more dramatically than HUM's. I would not be at
    all surprised if OXHP makes a run at HUM.

    • It is a tie. They can count forever but we will
      never know who really won Florida -- there is no way to
      determine a result that won't be inside the margin of error
      for that method of counting. Too bad there is no
      established mechanism for allocating delegates under such
      circumstances.

      Flip a coin! It's as good as anything at this point.
