one year ago

Just got back from drinking with a group of Democrats who supported several different primary candidates. The guy who worked with Clark's campaign was making the point that Iowa was a total disaster for Clark. Clark was attractive because of his military background, his southern roots, and his outsider status. How did Iowa go?
1. Military guy (Kerry)
2. Southern guy (Edwards)
3. Outsider (Dean)
Lots of other internal Democratic Party gossip was discussed. Good times all around.

Looks like they were right when they said, "the South will rise again." Maybe both parties should look for new bellwether states below the Mason-Dixon line.

I certainly hope the South rises again! At least, in the sense that I was an Edwards guy in the primaries, and I still am for '08.
