Stat of the Day

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 341

This nugget of hard news from the Associated Press today is just too good to pass up:


Sixty-three percent of Democrats say Hillary Rodham Clinton is good looking compared with 17 percent of Republicans, with Democratic women slightly likelier to say so than men. Barack Obama is viewed as good looking by 58 percent of Democrats, 41 percent of Republicans. John McCain is seen as good looking by about a quarter of those from both parties, according to an AP-Yahoo News survey released Feb. 1.

Which gives new meaning to the phrase, "political beauty contest."

Then there's Edwards, who is so good-looking it actually became a problem for him politically.

McCain holds no appeal for me, but I think Clinton and Obama are both attractive.
