GO WEST. On Sunday, the New York Times Magazine ran a piece by Mark Sundeen on the Democrats and their rising fortunes out West, with a focus on Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer. Good reading and, obviously, a trend which I agree is crucial to, and an indicator of, the Democrats� revival nationally.
And it�s not just Schweitzer and Montana, folks: If Bill Ritter, who in recent polls has a comfortable lead in Colorado�s governor race, wins next month, the Democrats will have five governors (at least: Democrat Dina Titus has an outside shot in Nevada of making it six) in the eight Interior West states by January 2007. Six years ago, they had none.
