McAwful Watch


In a classic case of unintended consequences, a process intended to produce unity, a strong candidate, and a compelling platform to take against President Bush has so far produced a campaign that many Democrats describe as strikingly harsh and marked more by daily bickering than sweeping themes or compelling new ideas on where to take the country.

Last week I revised my projections to put John Edwards in the probably won’t win category. But, I’m starting to reconsider. As this article makes clear — as have many others recently — Edwards is the only one not going negative. He may be able to present himself as the alternative. But, I still think it will be Clark and Deanovich.
