Deal Or No Deal?
The hottest rumor in Washington these days is that Barack Obama will soon pull off a hat trick, picking up a potent triple-endorsement. The way the story goes, Obama will be anointed by Teddy Kennedy, Al Gore and John Kerry all in one fell swoop. If it happens it is bound to make Big News. And let's face it, there is no love lost between Gore and the Clintons or Kerry and the Clintons. As for Teddy, at his age he may as well throw his hat in with the younger generation. But even if the endorsements do occur, would they really make any difference? All three of the presumed endorsers lost bids for the presidency. In the end, I still feel Clinton will be hard to stop. But it would be a lot more fun (and way more interesting) if events proved me wrong.
