The Fallback Candidate
hand, is looking a lot like Gladys Knight and the
Pips — and you can guess who gets to be Gladys.
-- Matt Bai in the New York Times Magazine
Bai's got an interesting profile of former Virginia gov Mark Warner, the "fallback" candidate many Queen-makers are hedging their bets with. They like Hillary, but if the public doesn't, they're keeping Warner close as the guy to pick up the mantle in 2008.
A one-term governor with no international experience, but good looks galore and lots of money. Sounds vaguely like John Edwards, only taller.
