handicapping the 2004 Democratic presidential primary:

first tier candidates: Gore, Kerry

second-tier: Gephardt

third-tier: Howard Dean, Ed Rendell

intriguing dark horses: Gen Wesley Clark, John McCain (*if* Mccain runs, he's a viable candidate but it's *highly* unlikely he will run as a Democrat)

flatter to deceive: John Edwards, Tom Daschle, Joe Lieberman, Joe Biden

notice I don't even bother to include Hillary Clinton, who is *not* running, except in the fevered minds of those who dislike the Clintons

how much these opinions are worth: how much you paid for them
