Don't Miss ...

... Matt Bai's New York Times Magazine cover article on former VA Gov/potential '08 contender Mark Warner. I'm having an unexpectedly busy day today and can't post more right this second, but will update this post with my thoughts on the article hopefully later on this evening.

[Update: It's a good article, I think. I laughed out loud at Bai's characterization of how the '08 Dem field is currently shaping up, that it's "looking a lot like Gladys Knight and the Pips — and you can guess who gets to be Gladys." Mark Warner certainly will have a difficult row to hoe if Hillary Clinton does get into the race (and for all intents and purposes, she might as well already have made her announcement). His issues are the right ones to be talking about in these times of partisan tension, and if he can keep his face out there and his nose clean, I think he's got just as good a chance as anyone at becoming that "anti-Hillary-Democrat." This kind of article is the kind of (ahem, free) publicity he's got to be hoping for to increase his name recognition big-time - he'll need all he can get. -- 9:42 p.m.]
