Instapundit continues to blaze the web trail tacking everything and all Dodd and we are more than happy to help get the word out. You can catch it here.
Like any Washington survivor who senses that the political tide is shifting, Dodd knows he must swim with it or sink in its wake.
And for Dodd, the danger of drowning is quite real. He’s up for reelection in 2010, and he has seen his poll numbers drop dramatically since a report last year about his alleged special mortgage deal from Countrywide Financial.
“Dodd actually is a vulnerable incumbent right now,” said Gary Rose, chairman of the government and politics department at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn. “This is an effort on his part to once again re-establish himself as a man of the people.”
Absolutely … As we mentioned on the show, who doesn’t own three homes, two of which we know are or were valued at about a million bucks. But my favorite part is this ….
But can Dodd make that turn and still count on the support of financial services firms — or at least those that still exist — to keep pumping money into his campaign coffers?
Plus: The Courant is reporting CNBC’s Larry Kudlow might challenge the Countrywide Kid … how about that?
