Mo Rocca on the Democratic candidates

Side comments from a friend of the Countdown

On Howard Dean: "If we have a president who occasionally has a seizure—so what?  I mean, you just have to deal with it.  If Nancy Reagan had an astrologer in the White House, the Deans can make room for an exorcist in the White House.  There‘s no reason they can‘t have one on standby in case he goes into one of his Tazmanian Devil fits."

On Dick Gephardt: "It saddens me that America is clearly not yet ready for an albino president. We‘re just not there yet." 

On John Edwards: "I think, proves that old political maxim that that it‘s great to have a candidate who combines Bill Clinton‘s smoothness with Justin Timberlake‘s spunk. I think it‘s going to be a great combination." 

On John Kerry: "Am I the only one that thinks John Kerry looks like a Shar Pei?  That he needs to get something tucked?"
