OK here's the deal. Democrats are going to be lockstep and fired up. All the flakes are going to get kicked to the curb, and very soon, within 6 weeks, basically after California votes, there's going to be swift and decisive unanimity. The theme is beat Bush no matter what and put all your eggs into one basket.

I think it's going to be Kerry or Edwards and in being consistent with what I've been saying all along, I hope it's Kerry although I think I'd be about as happy with Clark. Still, I have the feeling that Clark would piss off Wall Street. I don't know why but that's my feeling.

A Kerry Edwards ticket would be unstoppable as far as the Democratic party is concerned. So that's my prediction, based on the presumption that there are some Democrats whose heads are not completely anal-embedded. You heard it here first.

My dad thinks the same thing. So actually, I heard it at my dad's on Saturday first.

Couln't agree with you more Cobb. Actually my wife said this long before I did and she is no political junkie. 9 times out of 10, I realize I should have listened to her (woman's) intuition. Also, the in-laws, who are the definition of Reagan Democrats, seem to really be leaning toward Kerry. These are people who even supported Bush II's Iraq war but hate the way he is running the country. Can't wait till November.

Forgot to add: Kerry adds the experience and gravitas. Edwards adds the youth and optimism.

Although I initially supported Clark, he has not impressed me since he got in.

I still think it's too earl to make a reasonable predicion. February is still up in the air and I'm not counting Dean out just yet. Although I do see Edwards in the mix somehow.

I have to agree with you completely. Clarke caught my attention immediately but he seems to not have enough of a grounding in actually having a campaign (at leat a campaign that doesn't involve a few M-1 Abrams) that is salient. I initially thought Kerry (while about as exciting in person as Dracula with narcolepsy) had legitimacy in the beltway, and Edwards is young and vibrant and a dark horse (oh , how we all love a dark horse). And even thouygh he gets compared to a JFK-lite, I find him more like a scandal-free populist Clinton.
