There is an addendum to the last post.
I'm not sure there is much hope for Carville or Wilentz. They're both so personally invested in the Clinton legacy, I'm not sure they could bring themselves to be real Democrats and support their party's candidate, or any candidate, for President who doesn't have the last name "Clinton." There are patrons to be pleased, after all.
Far easier — and indeed safer for them personally — to sit back, gripe, and have the ability to say "I told you so" in December if Obama loses.
Hmmm. Does the sentence above make you think of anyone in particular?
