The Nine vs. The One

The Washington Post’s Dan Balz does a nice job of fielding questions, hypothetical and empirical, on the Democrat’s primary candidate field. Among other things he notes it odd that only an insurgent (Dean) has emerged before an established candidate (Kerry, Lieberman or Edwards), not visa versa; and he doubts any one will drop out before March pimaries.

Balz’s Q&A page is a good primer on the field which has to contend against what the L.A. Times describes as a Republican party with dreams of a political dominion, lunging along behind candidate Bush’s $34 million coattails.
