Under the Bus, Dodd!

State Senator Edith Prague took an opportunity to slam U.S. Senator Chris Dodd and pour at least a little cold water on statewide discussions of Dodd becoming the other half of the Obama presidential ticket.

As reported by Capitol Watch Prague threw Dodd under the bus and offered up some support for Hillary:
"I think Obama would be stupid at this point to put [Dodd] on the ticket. This mortgage deal. Give me a break. What's wrong with Hillary? She's smart. She's tough. She's a hard worker."

I think we all know what will determine where Obama goes for his VP depends on who State Representative William Tong endorses.

Prague, notorious for her truculent style, and famously letting her little dog crap all over legislative committee rooms and then blaming it on the seeing eye dog of a Republican employee, is usually an unprincipled labor shill. In this instance, I give her some credit for at least distinguishing herself from other Connecticut Democrats by publicly slapping Dodd in the face. Most everyone else in the CT Democratic circle dismiss his offenses and shamelessly offer him cover.
