I really sense that the Democratic primary is over, even before a vote has been cast. I simply can not imagine a scenario in which Dean is not the Democratic candidate next year. This just has such a sense of inevitability right now.

On the other hand, in about May, no one could have imagined a scenario in which he could become the candidate. So who knows?
Actually, in May I predicted it would be Dean.
The nomination certainly seems to be Dean’s to lose right now. Any guesses on who he’ll pick for the VP slot if he gets the nomination, John?
Someone who did not run for President- this primary has been too bitter. Maybe someone from the midwest.
I’d be surprised if it weren’t Clark.
“I’d be surprised if it weren’t Clark.”
Hmm. It’ll depend on whether Clark goes down swinging or not, I think: if he or his campaign goes sufficiently negative, it’ll be fodder for the general election (pun not intended) if he then gets the VP slot. I also think that he’s a bit more likely to go sufficiently negative, if only because most of the other candidates have more experience with electoral realities. His advisors know where to stop, I’m sure – but will he?
In the ’80 campaign, Bush 41 called Reagan’s economic plan “voodoo economics.” I’m not concerned.
