The Obama boomlet continues, but I still don't buy it. I think the junior Senator from Illinois's popularity is more a symptom of problems with the junior Senator from New York's campaign. Hillary Clinton always stood to be in trouble if she didn't look inevitable, and now, she's looking less so.
If not Obama or Clinton, who does that leave ? Kerry sank his own Swift Boat earlier in the year, and Gore has stayed out. The others ? Mostly small fry. . .but watch Edwards. He's left-populist on economics, anti-war, and can get the lawyers to contribute.
