9. You wonder what the author's agenda is
Neither Warner or Feingold are polling all that high. This may be name recognition to some degree - though Warner has gotten a large amount of media. Hillary is clearly still the front runner, but there are huge cracks showing. Like Tay Tay said she will also inherit Clinton's team.

This team is a mixed blessing - if that. Look at the advice that they and Bill gave Kerry, that they beat him up for not taking. 1) Keep talking about the economy 2) Endorse the gay bashing amendments (good idea for a genuinely principled candidate who has consistently stood up for all civil rights?) HilLary can have them. Whose that nice guy who will be running the Democratic Gov campaign in MA?

Although the polls will likely change - at this point it's silly to rule out Kerry or Edwards. If Gore decides to run by the end of the year that would be good too. Of these 3, the only one very likely to have enough money is Kerry. Kerry has done a lot to improve his chances since last year. Feingold will have enough only if he becomes the netroot choice. Kerry's best chance is if Gore and Feingold both back out. (Warner and Edwards are very inexperienced next to Kerry.)
