"It's morning in Iowa and, hopefully, these caucuses are the first step toward a new morning in America that begins on January 20, 2005.
You know, for all the "nine dwarves" trash talk by Republicans (and certain gutless, always-off-the-record Beltway Democrats), this field really has a lot to offer. In talking to Dems, I find that many wish they could somehow create a Lee Majors-esque, composite uber-candidate. You know what I'm talking about: Kerry's Vietnam service plus Clark's Balkan experience plus Gephardt's national domestic record plus Dean's gubernatorial fiscal discipline -- with a dash of Sharpton's quick wit, Graham's folksy twang, Braun's infectious smile and Kucinich's fiery intensity thrown in for good measure. (Sorry, but I'm at a loss to find anything bionic about Lieberman worth contributing to the mix.)"
