This, that and the other thing

Some odds and ends today...
  • Big endorsement: Boy I bet Mitt Romney is quaking in his boots today over word that Paul Cellucci is backing John McCain. This one was highly predictable from the moment Romney shoved aside Cellucci's No. 2 Jane Swift. Undoubtedly of more concern to Mitt is the McCain pickup of Weld-Cellucci and Healey mainstay Rob Gray. If anyone knows Romney's weaknesses (and has no penchant for attack), it's Gray.
  • The aforementioned Mr. Cheney "personality" has never been more vividly on display than in a combative interview with Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday. To still insist we are "winning" in Iraq if only the media would do it's part is denial of the highest magnitude. But it clearly demonstrates who continues to have W's ears. Anyone seriously think the call for bipartisan cooperation is real?
  • Think John Kerry's friends believed in their heart of hearts that he had a chance? The swift shift of Kerry fundraiser Alan Solomont to the Obama camp tells you what you need to know.
  • Marie Parente, are you smoking the same stuff as Dick Cheney? Speaking of someone who needs to make a graceful exit and not compare themselves to overpaid athletes....

Republicans better hope that Chuck Hagel runs for president. After GWB's impending sacrificial "surge", the election will be about the war and little else. There is exactly one Republican candidate who has been on the right side of this war since the beginning, and that is Hagel, and that makes him the only electable Republican in 2008.

Chuck is prominently featured in my most recent YouTube effort "It's the war, stupid." and recent blog post of the same name.

I'll trade Hagel for Joe Lieberman, even up.
