Once He Starts Losing, He’s A Loser

John Ellis has thoughts on Kerry and Edwards after Wisconsin.

It’s important to remember that Senator Kerry is viewed from within his campaign pretty much the same way he is viewed by Mickey Kaus and Ellisblog. They think he’s a stiff! They were surprised that he won Iowa (they thought the Edwards surge would catch them there) and they were amazed that he won New Hampshire more or less without a fight. And they’ve been stunned that the others have basically let him keep on winning. What they dread most of all is negative momentum, because (let’s face it) the candidate has no strong base of support within the party. They’re only for him because he’s winning. Once he starts losing, he’s a loser.

Read the whole thing. It’s quite good. Hat tip to Mickey Kaus.
