Missing Democrats

A clue surfaces as to their whereabouts:

Political junkies may have been wondering during the Iraq war whatever became of those nine Democrats who went off to run for president? Well, they are still campaigning, even if it is 18 months until the election. What is more, they have an actual debate scheduled tonight in South Carolina that unfortunately seems to be as much a national mystery as whether Saddam Hussein is dead or alive. Sponsored by ABC News, the debate has been embargoed, with no live coverage except — where else? — on a cable channel inside the Washington Beltway, where the campaign ruling class regularly vets reality for the rest of us. Here’s the schedule. Set your VCR’s and/or Tivos.
