Talk about just not getting it:
Democrat Carol Moseley Braun, the only black woman to serve in the U.S. Senate, formally declared her candidacy for president Monday, forging ahead with a long-shot bid in an otherwise all-male contest for the White House.
“I am uniquely qualified to do the job of president, and I offer the clearest alternative to this current administration, whose only new idea has been pre-emptive war and a huge new bureaucracy,” Braun said in a low-key appearance at Howard University. Her only introduction came from her 26-year-old son, Matthew Braun.
Take the hint, Carol. Start looking for a real job.
Does ‘low key’ mean the only folks that bothered to attend were her son and the local NOW rep?

Who can blame the one-term former Senator for adopting such a brilliant strategy (“I’m a woman–vote for me!)? After all, it worked so well for Liz Dole in 2000.
