Dodd, Not Yet King of Lilliputians, Ponders Staff Shake-Up

Taegan Goddard reports that, having missed their goal of “emerging as the leader of the second tier of Democratic presidential candidates,” Senator Christopher Dodd is being urged to “shake up” his senior staff. I’d start by firing the bonehead who though it would be a good idea for him to run for president.

  2. I’d start by firing the bonehead who though it would be a good idea for him to run for president.

    Indeed.

    (That made me laugh out loud, btw).

    And to underscore the point: I had forgotten he was running.

    Thanks. And, indeed, he’s one of the many “candidates” whom I did not think worthy of a measly WordPress subcategory.

  4. In the dark…

    Remember I’m a registered democrat. If I don’t know Dodd is in the race, most democrats and the American public probably don’t know either….

    I think Dodd is right in line with his reach for being leader of the second tier as being beyond his grasp. Perhaps the staff should get a new candidate.
