Winning the media cycle
Ha! Comment from the DailyKOS message board:
Hey, guess what story got buried beneath the Gore endorsement on the networks tonight?
Bush signing the Medicare bill, grinning like a fake Santa Claus.
Great double play, Al.
Update: Another comment worth re-posting:
Gore is reportedly traveling with Dean to Iowa tomorrow after Harlem for an "event that would 'change the face' of the Dean campaign." Could it be that the rumor mill swirling this morning about Harkin endorsing Dean is true, and is going to be combined with Gore's endorsement in an attempt to clear or winnow the Caucus/Primary field.
I haven't heard any other confirmation of this rumor, but it would just add to the media steamroll going into tomorrow night's debate.
I have always said that the Democrats need a candidate who knows how to play the media. Looks like we've got one.
