No it is not sown up yet... You might like it to be but...

Considering Dean is leading in NH and he is starting to lead in other states.

It's still too early to tell in my opinion. Dean has the momentum, but so did Harkin in 92.

...And Henry Wallace was clear favourite to be Roosevelt's running mate in 1944.

Alright, I have a question for all ya big dem's.  Why does Dean even bother coming to Idaho?  I honestly can't think of any strategy as to why he would come here.  But he did....
Right now Dean is collecting campaign money-there's probably a few California Liberals hanging out in ID for the ski season.   Dean only carries Idaho if Sharpton is the GOP nominee Smiley

Dean hardly has the primary sown up.  The real problem for him is that some of the pretenders or "dark horse" candidates have decided to disregard NH and IA and instead focus on Feb 3 primaries, mainly in the South and West.
Even if Dean sweeps NH, how much will one week of media coverage really help in states like South Carolina or Oklahoma?  And, if Gephardt wins Iowa, then he and Dean will be splitting the annointing.
I think the big test will be who is standing after Feb 3.  Edwards, Clark, and Lieberman could all show well in these states.

I agree, get a nominee first then lets talk.  Plus the longer the Dems take to pickj a nominee the better for Bush.  

If it would go tot the convention that is JUly and August is the olympics and few will care for that month, then GOP has its convention in Sept for a late boost before stretch run.

Interesting to see how many considered Gephardt to be a contender.

Back then, I did too. I honestly thought he was the candidate with the best chance of beating GWB, along with Clark.
