      •  Richardson thinks he's going to come in third. (0+ / 0-)

        That would have to be bad for one of the top three - probably Edwards.  It's unfortunate, I really did like some of the populist rhetoric coming out of Edwards.

        •  I like Edwards a lot better (3+ / 0-)

          than I like Obama. Obama doesn't think BushCO has done anything to warrant impeachment. He said that last summer, remember?

          And where is Richardson getting this idea? Good grief...

          Clinton's not out of it, not by a long shot. She's still got substantial support in New Hampshire. However, she needs Obama to stumble somehow for her to win.

          It must be frustrating, as a Clinton, to not be in control of one's political destiny. She is still running a strong campaign and performs well on the stump, but Obama is the choice of more voters right now. He's exciting people in a way she can't. However, should he do something wrong or handle a change in the campaign poorly, she's set up to do well.

          Do I think this will happen? It doesn't look likely. But who expected McCain to do so well several months ago? Who predicted Kerry?

    •  It's foolish to make any assumptions this early. (1+ / 0-)

      Just as Clinton did from the start.

      I expect (at least) Ckinton. Edwards, Kucinich and Obama to run al least to the halfway point and there remain large states that could yield significant swings in favor of Edwards or Clinton, who are both fighters.

      I rather doubt Obama is taking anything for granted and if he is he's a fool (but he insn't). He didn't get this far by sitting on his ass.
