Will Durst

With the start of baseball season and the presidential exhibition season, Will Durst writes a very amusing column "Presidential spring training". For the baseball/politics junkies who stop by (I know who both of you are), go read:
selected parts:

With no sitting President or Vice President running for the first time in 80 years, the '08 field promises to be more crowded than a trainer's table after the first day of wind sprints for pitchers and Molinas. Besides, this is America. Where any Dominican can become a
shortstop, and any American can become President, although when they coined that
phrase, I'm not sure they had George Bush in mind.


50 to 1. Delaware Senator Joe Biden. Back on disabled list with persistent foot in mouth disease. A little too comfortable flossing with own shoelaces.


8,000,000 to 1. Former Ohio Senator Dennis Kucinich. Could lose Iowa straw poll to the straw.


15 to 1. Fred Thompson. Warming up in the bullpen, if needed to relieve. Of course America would never accept an actor as President. Oh.

Added: Dang it, Gordon over at "The Alternate Brain" beat me to this.http://alterx.blogspot.com/

It's not a race, my friend. It's enough that great minds think alike.
