Ramesh posted about Marshall earlier, of course! Apologies.
I interned and worked for Marshall around Buchanan time and for a while after, and saw some of this evolution unfolding. I hate to see any additional Kerry voters, of course, but, Marshall is, in the fullest sense, a citizen, something you gotta love. Informed. Always thinking through, etc. (A sometimes incredibly frustrating endeavor.) And, in the end, I’m just glad he’s free of government work so he can return to his job as professional punditologist–he was, for a while, the most quoted person in Washington, always memorable, biting, often hysterical. When Kerry loses (can you blame a girl for wishful thinking?), the Dems will be grateful for him as they try to reconfigure.
