Now, when it is absolutely vital for Democrats to choose…


 

“John and Elizabeth Edwards” — apparently they were both running — show Democrats how not to choose.

I’m not sure what it is about third-placeness that makes not-choosing look like such a sophisticated option. François Bayrou has sunk almost without a trace in French politics, after briefly competing seriously against Sarkozy and Royal for the presidency. He still sees his irrelevance as an asset and guards it jealously. Apparently it is a malady that crosses oceans.


 

Now, when it is absolutely vital for Democrats to choose…

  1. And lest we forget third place Bob Rae sat on his hands much to the dismay of his old roomate, after he was knocked out – in third place – of the Liberal leadership race.

  2. Precisely! Throw to Dion and bolster your Liberal cred… Throw to Ig and cement the Oxford takeover… what is it about third that makes inertia seem like principle?
