For the past few days, we've been witnessing the first serious bruhaha amongst the perceived top two Dems, Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama. Former Clintonista and gay rights activist, David Geffen, is supporting Obama for president and taking shots at the Clintons' honesty and integrity. Perhaps the chickens of the Clinton compromise on "don't ask, don't tell" have finally come home to roost?
According to Andy Ostroy, this might be the possible opening for Al Gore to eventually step into the race. And it's true, I've heard from a lot of Gore supporters that they would love to see a Gore/Obama ticket in 2008. Should Obama's bid ultimately fail, thoughts of this fantasy ticket sounds pretty good to me. It would also provide Obama a serious platform in which to continue his own political career and run again in the future.
And, no, I'm not underestimating Hillary. The revamping of her image over the past 10 years has been nothing short of amazing. She's still the odds on favorite.
And I'm sure John Edwards and another favorite of mine, Bill Richardson, will have plenty to say before it's all said and done.
