Peter Augustine Lawler, writing in National Review Online, thinks the most likely scenario for the Democrats is a Wesley Clark-Hillary Clinton ticket, which he thinks could win a general election. His rationale is interesting and worth reading, although I’m far from sold on either candidate at this point. For one thing, a ticket with a combined two years of elected office experience would be unprecedented, certainly in modern times. For another, Clinton’s being on the ticket would virtually ensure that Bush swept all the Deep South states.

I’m also not convinced yet that it’s obviously a choice between Dean and Clark at this point. While no one else seems to be getting any traction in Iowa or New Hampshire, that’s no longer a necessity. I’ll believe Dean’s doing well in the South when I see it.
