The signs so far this

The signs so far this afternoon and early evening suggest to me that the DFL party will name a successor candidate to Sentor Wellstone. The Star Tribune Web site carries an AP story stating “Democrats to decide who will replace Wellstone on ballot.” The KARE 11 news site has “Politicians scramble to deal with Wellstone succession.” The Pioneer Press story, “Different candidate’s name likely to appear on November ballot,” baldly states that Senator Wellstone’s name will not appear on the ballot. Reading the tea leaves here, it seems to me that former Vice President Walter Mondale (groan) is waiting to enter, stage left. Rocket Man, did we really have to write that Star Tribune column mocking such a revered elder statesman?
