Stolen in full from Hotline On Call…with a few modifications (in bold)…
‘Twas the week before ’07, and all through DC, Democrats were stirring. How could they not be?
Top staffers announced by ’08ers with care, in hopes that the benjamins soon would be there.
Rahm and Schumer were nestled all snug in new power, while Reid and Pelosi prepared their first 100 hours.
And HRC in her ‘kerchief, and Edwards in his cap, took a long, hard look at the electoral map.
When out in the ’08 field there arose such a clatter, HRC sprang from her bed to see what was the matter. When, what to the senator’s eyes should appear, but the junior Obama’s political premiere!
First, Warner! Then, Allen! Now, Frist, even Evan! Who’ll run? Richardson, Kerry, Dodd, and Joe Biden?
To the top of White Mountain, to Iowa Falls! Now dash away, dash away, dash away all! Barack’s eyes, how they twinkled! His smile, how merry! Who else could bring a sell-out crowd to NH’s Derry?
And we heard him exclaim as he sped out of sight, Happy Holidays to all, see you on caucus night!
