Back to the play book...

A memo to Ditka from my friend Ben. As always, he says what I want to say, the way I wish I could say it.


  • Hey Pete,
    Have you read any of the TNR stuff on Barrack? He appears to be a rising star, I agree, but before everyone gets too carried away with him, it is worth remembering how lucky he's been.

    He was losing badly to Blair Hull, who was, and I'll put this as diplomatically as possible, an asshole, in the democratic primary. Turns out Blair beat his wife, and from then on, it was all Obama. Then he gets the Ryan non-sex, non-adultery scandal too. While he would have trounced Ryan anyway (my guess was 63-37 or so, landslide), now he's been saving cash. WHen a candidate finally emerges, he has cash saved up.

    In other words, he's close to not even having won the nomination.

    On the national scene, how will he fair? Will he be a Kerry/Edwards type, or a Wellstone/Feingold type?
