I mentioned yesterday my modest wager on Mark Warner as a potential Presidential election winner. At least he has broken through in rural areas for the Democrats in Virginia. The Telegraph today highlights Mudcat, the Democrats' latest weapon in the southern states. Mudcat is a "gun-loving, stock-car-racing-made country boy" who has been advising top Democrats on how to win the Southern states. I am glad they asked him. We must never forget that if Gore and Clinton had won their own southern states of Tennessee and Arkansas in 2000, the pregnant chads of Florida would have been an irrelevance and the world would never have been subjected to George W Bush. A sobering thought.
