BLUE STATES

Deciding that America needs yet another quixotic run for national office by a liberal, New England Democrat, Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut told reporters he's "gearing up for a possible run for president."

Despite rock-solid intelligence indicating that only 14 people in the entire nation outside the Northeast would even "consider voting for that tool," Dodd seems convinced that only he can continue to destroy the Democratic party's chances ever to regain the White House.

"I alone bring the triple death score of being a liberal, New England Democrat," Dodd told the stunned press. "I want to fight for the traditions and history of the Democratic party. And since 1980 that pretty much means nominating a spineless party hack, devoid of charisma and personality. And I'm here to tell you, I'm the man to carry that torch."

Reports that following Dodd's revelation, a wild & unhinged blow-out celebration went down at GOP national headquarters have not been confirmed.

Responding to a barrage of questions, the unannounced, unofficial, yet somehow frontrunning 2008 Democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton, said only, "That wuss? I'm gonna kick his ass."

"Dodd is known as a behind-the-scenes negotiator who has been successful in getting major legislation through Congress, including the Family and Medical Leave Act and spending increases for Head Start and other programs for children."

He's so behind the scenes that most of his constituents don't even know what he's up to half the time.

Yeah, I voted for him to retain his Senate seat. He's been ok as a senator. Maybe he could be governor, but the Presidency seems out of reach for him. Stranger things have happened of course.

Hell, if it was a 3-way choice between him, Hill & Jeb, I'd probably hold my nose and waste my vote on Dodd.

But politics is about more than ideology (to give Mr. Dodd a *huge* and probably undeserved benefit of the doubt). It's about . . . well, politics.

Anyone who wants to see Bush & his cronies out of the White House should ask this: is Chris Dodd the man or woman to do the job?

I can't say yes to that.

Nor can I. He hasn't shown enough chutzpah to prove than he can do it. He's a niche politician and his niche is a small, mostly blue, New England state.
