In my post about Democratic Presidential candidates, I forgot about Bill Bradley, Bob Kerrey, and Dianne Feinstein. I would put Bill Bradley in the second tier, along with Gephardt, and Bob Kerrey and Dianne Feinstein either in the third tier or out of the running.

I find it mystifying why Feinstein doesn't get any buzz as a Presidential candidate. Maybe because she's slightly older and dowdier than the Baby Boomer women the press corps usually fawn over.
