If you'd like to laugh at the pomposity of media potentates who've been writing off the candidacy of Howard Dean specifically (and any Democrat generally), take a look at what Washington Times political analyst Donald Lambro was writing about Bill Clinton in June 1992 ("Can Bill Clinton Save His Candidacy?" Well, no! Can't happen! He'll never be president!).
Reading stuff like this will get you over the funk of watching three straight hours of Sunday morning gasbags on TV. And will remind you how precious little any of these guys ever know in advance of votes being cast.
