Great analysis of the Cannellos piece, which, despite revealing phrases like "persuade working-class people to vote against their economic interests", is pretty good! Particularly his unskeptical citation of Bush 43 on 'Country Club Democrats,' i.e. the Wall Streeters - the post-Iowa vote proves that constituency certainly votes with their pocketbooks - even if Google can't find a reference to Iowa and yesterday's stock prices. (Or maybe investors were selling stocks to raise cash for more Hilary commercials?)
The problem IMHO is that the Republicans have, over time, become as fractured and factionalized as the Dems did post-1960, and there are many reasons for this (at least a book's worth!) Whitewater provided a distraction from the growing internal contradictions of the party (now I sound like a left-wing intellectual :->), not unlike Watergate for the 70s Dems.
As a respite from Hilary TV, check out Republican Hugh Cort's ad which ran on Fox News this morning - holy LBJ! I never heard of Cort either, but he has been in Wyoming more often than Mitt or Huckaby lately, so might we see more surprising caucus results later today?
