More 2008 links
First off, congrats to Belmont, Mass. gal Angelique Pirozzi who has been named to Hillary Clinton's Iowa caucus team: ["Clinton Campaign: Announces Iowa Senior Staff"]. I know Angelique has done great work in the past so this is pretty good news for the Clinton team.

It looks as if Gore isn't going to run unless something major happens: ["Al Gore's Presidential Guessing Game"]. By major, I mean brokered convention major. But with as many as 10 candidates and the primary schedule shifting all over the place, this is unlikely to happen.

A Lawrence, KS paper has started a coverage blog for Sen. Sam Brownback: ["The Brownback Report"]. These kinds of feature-like hard news presidential campaign projects have been done for many years. But with the Web, they have become a lot more accessible to people outside a newspaper's circulation area.

Edwards' new N.H. coordinator has been named: ["Edwards picks head of New Hampshire office"].

The Christian Science Monitor has this overview of potential firsts in 2008: ["In 2008 race, many firsts are possible"]. There have been other articles written like this one before. However, the CSM piece has charts!

Giuliani names Mass. team: ["Mayor Giuliani announces Massachusetts Leadership Team"]. While Romney tries to counter some of the bad press he has been receiving in the state: ["Massachusetts Leaders endorse Gov. Mitt Romney"].

Gov. Bill Richardson is the first one to jump on the diplomacy with Iran issue: ["Diplomacy, Not Attacks"]. Is this a play about the issue or an email gathering program?

American Research Group released some southern and western polling numbers earlier this week:

Dems: Clinton 44, Undecided 23, Obama 13, Edwards 11, Clark and Dodd at 3, Richardson and Vilsack at 1.
