Pretty freakin' impressive.

For Dodd, A Major Endorsement
27 Aug 2007 01:45 pm

The Politico's Ben Smith has news of the International Association of Fire Fighters' impending endorsement of Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT)

That means the Firefighters, the first union to endorse Sen. John Kerry in 2004, won't endorse Hillary Clinton or Bill Richardson, two reliable allies.

Dodd, meanwhile, gets a major boost, particularly in New Hampshire, where the Firefighters union takes politics seriously and provides serious help to its endorsed candidate on primary day.

Why Dodd? No official word yet, but it's probably because the IAFF could not ignore his long Senate history of providing tangible political and material benefits to its members.

In reality, as much as the pundits would like us to think that the race is over, there is still 3 months until the primaries and MANY more endorsements to be meted out. Things could change.

I hope people are still willing to mix-up their endorsements. I say that's its too early to crown Hillary as the presumptive nominee - let's keep it interesting for awhile!

It's good for the party to have many different viewpoints on display for as long as we can keep 'em there.

Remember '04 is my mantra. The buzz was on Howard Dean, we got John Kerry.
I am still convinced that Edwards will do better than expected. And in a perfect world, Kucinich would come out on top. Which would be a funny visual.

Kirsten! Stop that! Okay, don't.
