Making A solid Case for Mark Warner

I found this column on the Scaife papers website-think it makes a great argument for former Virginia Gov Mark Warner, which is shocking because we all know about Scaife ghtrib/opinion/columnists/zito/s_453676. html

"Mudcat": Webb is Secretariat; Dems can retake the South

bumped from the diaries -- jonathan... we don't have a dog in this primary between James Webb and Harris Miller, but this is an interesting post worth checking out

In today's Roanoke Times, there's an excellent, entertaining profile of Jim Webb senior advisor - and Roanoke County developer - Dave "Mudcat" Saunders (pictured at the far left), one of the most colorful characters I've ever had the privilege of meeting.    Besides advising people like Mark Warner - in his 2001 run for Governor - and Jim Webb for Senate, Saunders is now coming out with a book entitled, "Foxes in the Henhouse : How the Republicans Stole the South and the Heartland and What the Democrats Must Do to Run 'em Out." The book is co-written with another senior advisor to both Mark Warner in 2001 and Jim Webb in 2006 - Harvard Professor Steve Jarding (the guy in the blue shirt next to Mudcat in the picture).   The book is avaliable in bookstores on March 28, and the Saunders/Jarding team is gearing up to  promote it.

Hillary's sorry connection to Wal-Mart, re: AP

It's been common coin on the blogs, and now the wire services are covering Senator Hillary Clinton's sorry history with the undead who run Wal-Mart. AP political writer Beth Pouhy notes in part how:

The Money Race for the White House

The race for the White House is years away; however, the money race is starting off red hot as Hillary Clinton leads the race, but that could because she had a race this fall. There are some surprising numbers in the latest campaign finance reports as many candidates for the 2008 Democratic Nomination are constructing an impressive warchest.

The Leaderboard:

  1. Hillary Clinton     : 17.1
  2. John Kerry          : 10.0
  3. Evan Bayh          :  9.5
  4. Joe Biden           :  2.5
  5. Chris Dodd         :  2.0
  6. Tom Vilsack        :  1.6
  7. Russ Feingold      :  0.794
**Cannot find numbers for Mark Warner.

I'm really shocked about Russ Feingold low fundraising with less than a million dollars and that's with the backing of the internet establishment. Maybe the numbers will go up as the Internet Bloc has shown that it can be a fundraising force--Howard Dean?
