I wouldn't give up on Dean just yet, Kerry may have the votes but there is one set of numbers he is short on, CASH! Now there is even talk about him taking a SECOND MORTGAGE out on the Heinz Palace to help pay for this run. For some reason being the "Front Runner" has yet to translate into campaign donations.

What will be really interesting is the primaries next week. With Dean and Kerry further away from their home states - how will they do in the relatively Southern state of Missouri and in the deep South against Edwards? I know a lot of people are using a wait and see attitude (might explain the money problems for Kerry) before betting on any of the 4 front runners. At this point I give Edwards a better chance of catching Kerry then Dean - he took his two best shots in Iowa and New Hampshire and came up short in both.

Scuttlebutt has it that Dean's campaign manager, Joe Trippi has left the campaign.
