Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen may not get the superdelegate primary that he wants, but he is getting a higher national profile because of the idea. His interview with the Politico is receiving a lot of attention. Some excerpts:
"They have a much steeper, rockier hill to climb if it goes to the convention," the governor said over a dinner of rockfish and red wine. "You're going to spend this whole summer -- and lots of money and time and effort -- trying to convince people that whoever isn't eventually nominated, isn't electable.
"That's a heck of a hole to climb out of come the first of September," he added. "What's been going on for the last 90 days just gets worse and worse as the summer goes on."
"Ninety days ago, everybody was talking in warm terms about both the candidates: 'Isn't it wonderful? Whoever's president is going to be great,'" the governor said. "It has gotten vastly more polarized now, and that really concerns me."
