1% Dodd: "A Lot of Room to Grow"

Well, that is certainly one of the more grand understatements I have ever heard from a politician evaluating the status of their campaign.

When Senator Chris Dodd was asked about his most recent showing in the AP-Ipsos poll at 1%, Dodd said "Well, we've got a lot of room to grow here, as we say," which at least demonstrates that he has a sense of humor concerning his pathetic standings.

Then there's this from the Associated Press: ``So if history is any teacher at all, then there's someone here that is in this second tier that's going to emerge, I think, and, and be a viable candidate come January, February,'' Dodd said, implying it could be him.

If we are to believe his positive spin, Lyndon Johnson's corpse could be in for another term (he's tied with Dodd right now).

I am begging Dodd not to leave the race until the primary here in Connecticut. I don't think any of us should be deprived of the spectacle of Chris Dodd coming in fifth in his home state.

HH - Can we start a movement in CT to get lots of people to send him money just so he can stay in the race till the primaries.. as I would also love to what his numbers would be. LOL
It could be like in American Idol when people vote for losers like Sanjaya to keep them in the race on purpose.

Thats a bit of an understatement it self.
