TOM MAGUIRE HAS THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET COVERED:

OK, dream ticket – Dean-Clark? The fiscally responsible / socially irresponsible Governor, the General, two guys that gun nuts could love – why not?

Well, it beats Kucinich-Sharpton! Meanwhile David Adesnik has more over at Oxblog, where he’s winning praise from Kevin Drum for his vivid prose.

UPDATE: Jim Henley thinks that libertarians might bolt the Republican party for the right Democratic ticket. He may be right. Bush hasn’t exactly stood for small government — and yeah, I know, there’s a war on, but the war, ironically, is where the big-spending tendencies seem to be most restrained — and while he hasn’t been any worse than Clinton on civil liberties other than gun rights, he hasn’t been much better, and the gun-rights talk has mostly been just that, talk.
