Kennedy: A Distant 3rd? No Way

Kennedy fans will predict he wins, natch. No news there. My super seekrit source tells me that a poll conducted last week had Mikey running a distant third with a dead heat between Mary and DanDang responding to comment by Jane Q. Citizen.

DFO: If your super seekrit source is the late, not-so-great Any Mouse, who’s been advising the Souza campaign, I’d hold the prediction at arm’s length. I still remember his call on the day of Clinton’s re-election, predicting that Bob Dole was going to win. I find it hard to believe that Mike will finish a distant third in a town that “leans” Republican but isn’t solidly Republican. Add to that strong bipartisan support, two opponents who should divide what’s left of the hard-line Repub vote and lots of bucks to get his message out, and you have a formidable candidate who isn’t going to finish a distant third.
