…Hillary runs this year…. By the end of May it will be the big story again: brokered convention. Dems are definitely not enthused about Kerry. If he only had the passion of a Dean, without the insanity. Is Hillary even considering? I think the biggest reason she would: age. Botox can only do so much. Plus, overall, she’s a superstar now, why waste it?

Will it really happen? Probably not. (And, I know, I know, I am hearing Rick Brookhiser’s wise historian voice in my ear right now: It won’t happen. The pundits always want a brokered convention. Not happening.) But I’d probably put 10 bucks down on it anyway.
