Stephen Green seems to be back to semi-regular status at Vodkapundit, and comes forward with the best election advice I’ve seen so far:
What?s going on in Race ’08 ? and why the hell do we care already? It’s not even summer yet, and already it seems we have two winners (Giuliani, Clinton), a bunch of also-rans (everybody not named Clinton or Giuliani), a failed sure thing (McCain), a sure loser (Clinton in November), a dark horse (Thompson), and a possible stalking horse (also Thompson). Of the eight names I just mentioned, we get just four people. That fact shouldn’t make you forget that there are
Edwards? er, upwards ? of seven hundred other candidates, both real and imagined.
Unless, of course, you’d rather forget the whole lot of them, given that it’s not yet even April of the year before the summer before the autumn of the election. Which will lead directly into the winter of somebody’s discontent, or possibly everybody’s. Yet no matter who the winner is, we might know who the candidates will be in as little as 305 days from right now. Race ’08 is the seventh I’ve followed closely, but I’ve never seen anything like it. Nobody has. But mostly it makes me feel like yawning.
