I'm hoping the far-right stays obsessed about Hillary for about the next 20 months.
Barrack is a distraction to that hope.
He's fascinating to hear, but, at some point, I'll bet the media and far-right chew him up and spit him out.
Whenever a fresh face, completely out of the blue, comes into the presidential world, that's what happens. On all sides of the political spectrum. Think Ross Perot. John McCain, too, to some degree.
For those playing the home version of this game, Hillary already has 350-450 delegates sewn up. The super-delegates have already been chosen by the party structure. She's gotten the lion's shae of them.
I think you're right, Rick. Barrack is getting some great press right now, but I don't think he'll land the top spot. He hasn't put in enough time, energy and money yet - while Clinton has been working towards this for years now. Sometimes the early bird truly does get the worm... I do think he'll end up in the #2 spot though - whoever else wins the nomination.
He'll be the Democrats version of Dan Quayle - only hopefully brighter and less of a stuffed suit.
