Bob Shrum apparently slams John Edwards in his new book. While I am no fan of Edwards, I believe that Shrum is not being completely honest in his portrayal of Edwards and something must have happened in the last year to sour their relationship. I attended a talk last year with Bob Shrum, which was followed by a question & and answer period sponsored by the Law Democrats. In the q&a period, he indicated that he thought it was Edwards and not Kerry who was the candidate best loved by Iowans and that if the Iowa caucus had lasted longer that Edwards would have won it. Therefore, I reason to suspect a recent deterioration in their relationship, which caused Shrum to lash out at Edwards.

Colorado doesn't look good for Republicans in 2008

According to Roll Call, which is corroborating a local report in the Rocky Mountain News, Bob Schaffer will enter the Republican Senatorial Primary in Colorado. Schaffer, was generally considered too conservative by party strategists in 2004, which is why Pete Coors was encouraged by many to run.

So, either party strategists underestimated Schaffer's broader appeal or alternatively Republicans are going to lose this seat unless they can convince someone else to run. Mark Udall, the likely Democratic nominee is considered a very formidable candidate.

Besides losing a seat, this will once again bring up the typical nonsense about how the West is going to become all Democratic in the next few years. Hopefully, the Republicans can find someone else or alternatively Schaffer will try to appeal to a broader spectrum of people this time around.
