Warner dubbed "Governor Nobody"

The London Times newspaper has an interesting article today about the race for the Democratic nomination in 2008. The paper continues the trend of portraying Hillary Clinton as the favored candidate of Democratic activists but as someone who many feel is unelectable.

In response, former Virginia Governor Mark Warner is floated as the moderate alternative to Clinton that could help the Dems recapture the White House. The Times also compared Warner to Tony Blair, a comparison that Warner encouraged. However they also quoted someone who was considering supporting Warner as saying, "I don’t know a thing about him and I don’t care."

That's not particluar encouraging praise for a Presidential candidate.

I hope you're right --- I certainly agree --- but who would've thought that four-flusher Jimmy Carter (an equal nobody) could've become President? And I probably have more esteem (admittedly a low standard) for Warner than I do for Carter.

Warner will spend $100 (at least).

Potential name recognition problems are not even among his top ten worries...
