Too Little Too Late

T

I’m not in Iowa or New Hampshire, but it seems to me from Georgia that with a compressed primary schedule, Deanovich’s Rivals are doing too little too late:

With Howard Dean rolling into the new year with a commanding edge in money and momentum, his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination are adopting different — and risky — strategies to trip up the front-runner and emerge as the leading anti-Dean candidate by early next month.

The strategies range from Rep. Richard A. Gephardt’s one-state last stand in Iowa to Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman’s rapid-fire attacks on Dean to retired Army Gen. Wesley K. Clark’s national campaign on electability. All of them depend on Dean stumbling during the Jan. 19 Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary the following week.
