Less for comment than for interesting information about Kucinich, and Braun(and even some Gary Bauer) for those who were Running for President on Empty

Lieberman is expected to draw in vast numbers of Jewish donors.

I hate it when reporters are lazy about this issue, and assume that a) Jews are all exited about Leiberman, and b) have a ton of money to burn, and so just put 2 and 2 together and come up with some bullshit like this.

Not only does the general Jewish community almost always prefer a non-Jewish candidate that supports Jewish issues rather than a Jewish candidate (for a lot of reasons I won't get into now), but the Jews that give to Democrats that do have money to burn are generally Civil Libertarian types, who are the last people to give to Leiberman. Leiberman's core constituency and doner base is vastly different from the general Jewish community. I'm not saying he won't get some donations from Jews (I'm pretty sure my wife's Aunt and Uncle are giving to him), but the idea that he's expected to draw these "vast numbers of Jewish doners" is ridiculous, and really lazy reporting at best. Don't believe me? Check out Joe's fundraising numbers.

I could really write

"I'm sorry, I didn't think I was going to talk about 'man on dog' with a United States Senator. It's sort of freaking me out."

Bush would get a stronger % of the Jewish vote running against Lieberman than he did against Gore.

You forget that the Senate loves their own. Taking this tangent and running with it, could their be a worse nominee than Clarence Thomas? He's had the most spectacularly uneventful term on the Supreme Court.
