CNN is now saying that Gephardt is dropping out after getting his but kicked in Iowa. I really wonder how this is going to play out in endorsements given that he was Labor's favorite son.

Technically, the nit-picker says, this is three down, as Bob Graham dropped out some time ago.

He didn't get as many of the union endorsements as he thought he would.

It was bound to happen eventually. At least now Missouri is a bit more interesting (I think he would have has a harder time here than he thought).

Exactly. As soon as some of the unions started to endorse Dean, Gephardt was finished.

Incidentally, I'd say Dean would be next after New Hampshire. But he's insane, so he'll be running forever. The Harold Stassen of the 21st century...

His bigger problem was, IMO, that he is associated as the loser when the Reps won control of the House in '94. His other problem was running an old school campaign in 2004. Running your campaign from 16 years ago didn't cut it. In many ways union support is eh as the power of unions has diminished considerable over the last 30 years.

You all may not like Dean but he's not an idiot, don't count him out just yet. Iowa may be the kick in the pants he needs.

And Dean has a lot of money, which goes a long ways.

And as I recall, he has opted out of the matching money which gives him a leg up to spend like a crazy man.

On the Sherman quote: It really is moot at this point, as with the current primary system it is a virtual impossibility to get nominated without vigorous campaigning, let alone getting the nomination without wanting it.
