Senator Dodd

Senator Dodd is getting antsy.

And we can't blame him. Dodd ran his campaign for President on issues and ideas. And then bowed out gracefully when the time came for him to do so.

The man should be the next Senate Majority Leader, if the Democratic Party had any self-respect left to pull the trigger.

Of course, that's someone else's problem.

But can anyone imagine the Obama/Clinton fight going on right now if Democratic leadership more competent than Howard Dean, Harry Reid and (probably) Nancy Pelosi were in charge?

We can't.

We wonder if, given the current situation, the Clintons thank their lucky stars that Howard Dean actually ended up becoming head of the Democratic Party over their strenuous objections a couple of years back?

Politics is a weird, weird business.
