Political bits

(AP) Nader's running. (Really? Are there Naderites left?)

(Politico) Clinton reaction: “Well that’s really unfortunate. I remember when he did this before. It did not turn out very well for anybody, most especially our country,” she said. “This time I hope it doesn’t hurt anybody. I hope it’s kind of a passing fancy that people don’t take too seriously.”

(Politico) Obama reaction: "And I think the job of the Democratic Party is to be so compelling that a few percentage of the vote going to another candidate is not going to make any difference."

(AP) Obama continues to go after Clinton over NAFTA. (Very effective in Ohio, but down here in Texas, not so much.)

(CNN) Clinton (sort of) apologizes at the Black State of the Union forum for Bill Clinton's remarks in South Carolina. "If anyone was offended by anything that was said, whether it was meant or not, whether it was misinterpreted or not, then obviously I regret that."

(WaPo) Howard Dean is filing a complaint with the FEC over McCain's public financing imbroglio. (Does all this blunt McCain's attack on Obama over the supposed public financing pledge?)

And, shouldn't I be swimming in polling right now?
