Most people are probably aware of Mark Warner’s announcement that he is no longer interested in competing for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2008. The former governor of Virginia is claiming that he wants to spend more time with his family. Alas, I shall pretend that I’m a qualified psychiatrist able to discern his subconscious motivations. Mark Warner senses that the Democrats are going to do poorly in next month’s elections. Everything is then going to get a lot uglier. The viciousness will dramatically increase. Anyone who dares go after the grand prize will endure much vilification and even downright hatred. And finally, the so-called winner will be slaughtered by the Republican nominee. Would you willingly subject yourself to this sort of abuse when you have so little chance of being victorious? This country is thankfully becoming more Republican. The Democrats are too crazy and cannot be trusted with power during these dangerous times. Mark Warner is better off staying out of harm’s way. Let Hillary Clinton play the role of sucker.
