You could cut the excitement with a knife when the Reverend Jesse Jackson walked into the media room for a press conference a few minutes ago. Don’t have time to write much about it right now but here's some good quotes from Jackson:
"Many Democrats have faked Left and then voted Right. With the deepening crisis, too many Democrats are hedging their bets and Ned Lamont offers another direction."
"The Iraq war is not a single issue, it is a central issue. We're losing lives, we’re losing money, we’re losing honor -- we're losing the war. If it were about national security, eminent threat or WMD, it would be a different story, but it's about none of that."
"There are a lot of people concerned about Lieberman playing it both ways. Lamont says if Lieberman wins, he will support Lieberman. Lieberman says if Lamont wins, Lieberman will support himself."
In describing the Progressive opposition to the Iraq war and to fighting Bush's domestic policies, Jackson said. "This is not the far Left, it's the moral center."
