Political Shocker! Tom Vilsack Drops Out Of Race!

Maybe he just wasn't Vilsacky enough. Maybe his name sounded more like a medical condition than the househould name for a president of the U.S. Regardless, Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa has dropped out of the 2008 Democratic presidential race after facing huge problems raising money.

Politics is a cruel game, where even the well qualified and serious candidates for office simply cannot be elected without the pursestrings needed to run the race. It is expected that any candidate who cannot raise at least $100 million by the end of the year for the Democratic nomination may almost certainly face elimination and not able to mount a serious attempt. Tom Vilsack is likely to only be the first of the dropouts, with Joseph Biden and others only likely to follow, maybe even before the first primary.

One thing is nearly certain, by this same time in 2008, both the Democratic and Republican nominess should be virtually certain to have been chosen. Boy, oh boy, what a long two years that it's going to be.
