Turmoil in Kerry Camp?

After the surprise Democratic debacle in the 2002 elections, some FoxNews contributor -- maybe William Kristol -- made me cackle with evil glee.

He said, "The boring part of the election is over. Now comes the fun part-- the recriminations."

As they say, it's funny. It's funny and it's true.

It's too early to cackle, but we can at least allow ourselves a cautious grin about rumors of turmoil and recriminations in the Kerry camp. And when I say "rumors," I mean that word as it is usually used in politics, i.e., meaning "uncontroverible fact."

Bob Shrum and Mary Beth Cahill seem to be on the chopping block. I wonder if Kerry will recall Jim Jordan, who's currently "independently" running a liberal 527.

Even more delicious is that Charlie Cook -- he of the much-respected although liberal-leaning Cook Political Report -- has completely recanted his predictions of a Kerry win, which were (of course) trumpeted by Oliver Willis and Josh Marshall a month ago.

I doubt they'll be saying much about this re-evaluation:

It really is pretty amazing how fast the conventional wisdom can change. Three weeks ago, most political insiders in both parties gave Sen. John Kerry a slight edge over President Bush ...

Also: Read down to the Zogby polling (next item). Likely undecided voters favor Bush over Kerry by 35-10, when all the minor party candidates are factored in.
