Tom Vilsack dropped out of the Democratic primary race, and it sounded like a tree falling in the middle of a forest. No-one heard it.The same fate awaits Chris Dodd, as well as Joe Biden. These guys are has-beens, and never-will-be's. The real stars of the left are Al Gore and Hillary.
Al deserves his place at the table, and has gone to amazing lengths to get there. If he wins an academy award for his movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," he could step on Hilary like a bug in the primaries. He has the freedom to be as "left" as he wants, and can try to slide back to the right enough to fool the average voter, after the primaries.
Hillary's other biggest threats are Barack Obama and John Edwards, according to the MSM. David Geffen has created a firestorm between Hil and Obama, and Edwards had a minor dustup with Hil a few weeks ago. This looks like choreographed chaos to me, and Hil looks to come out on top.
One question: why is there no such heavy brawling between Giuliani, McCain, and the other Republican candidates? (I'm sure it will come, a little later...)
...Just some random thoughts about the way things will shake out.
