PPPS (Denver) With the fate of our economy hanging on debt limit negotiations in Washington, DC, we thought it might be instructive to look back at Pundit Pete's first opinion piece, written on the eve of the 2008 elections. To Pete's great astonishment, this piece was rejected when originally submitted to several newspapers and media outlets. But out of the ashes of that initial disappointment rose the Pundit Pete Press Service, to become the media giant that it is today. We offer this bit of history to our loyal readers -- Pundit Pete's first opinion piece printed here for the first time.
