Side note:Intervening in Liberia may well be the right thing to do, but I suspect it would be a politically unpopular move for the Bush administration, perhaps opening up some room for the Democrats to work with on the foreign policy front.

In other news, the word on the street (or at least in the Washington Post) is that Dean probably isn't cute & cuddly enough with the press to make a serious run against W. Leaving aside the question of how someone could be less well suited to intensive press scrutiny/more inclined to annoy the media than W, it seems like a serious problem for Dean; if you're going to run as the outsider, you need the press to love you--and even then it doesn't mean you're going to win (see McCain, John).
This woman is totally nuts. NUTS! I saw her on Hardball last night and she infuriated me to the point I couldn't watch it anymore. Unfortunately, the talk show hosts are generally pretty kind to her and give her something of a pass on her craziness. Kudos to Cohen for finally calling her out.
