The WaPo's Dan Balz stops to consider how Tuesday's Connecticut senate primary will affect Al Franken, wait, I mean Hillary Clinton. Hurts her for 2008, helps Al Gore. Or maybe helps John Edwards. Then again, everything helps John Edwards when reporters talk about John Edwards.
Balz maintains that Gore far outstrips other potential anti-war candidates in popularity among "grass-roots activists." Really? One global warming flick and all is forgiven for not fighting to the bitter end over the hanging chads of Florida? I thought that was still part of the activists' bill of indictments against the Democratic leadership, but perhaps not.
In any event, it all is worth a read. Gaze upon these names and despair America.
