Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

More Good Poll News
This new poll shows Clark not only in first place, but with a solid 9 point lead. And that isn't even the best news - for the first time, Clark is actually beating Bush head to head - the first poll result in which Bush loses to a specific Democrat! Kerry also beats Bush by 1% among registered voters. It should be noted that the sample is rather small and the results well within the margin of error.
The poll doesn't really tell us anything about what the reults next November will be. It does tell us that the logic behind the Clark draft was real. There is a feeling among grass roots Democrats that the pre-Clark field wasn't up to snuff. There is a readiness among voters to send Bush back to Texas. And Clark's credentials as a decorated combat veteran and four star General do translate into credibility with the electorate, giving voters the confidence they need to dump Bush.
