The Wall Street Journal's Thursday story on Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer's rising Democratic star prompted all sorts of swooning at dKos. Many posters are eager to team up Schweitzer with Barack Obama (on either end of the ticket) for the next Presidential, and the whole thread is a giddy analysis of whom we might send up against the GOP in 2008. Fun reading, even if - as several people are pointing out - Gov. S is just two months into his first job as a public official and we still have to make our stand in 2006. But oh, what fun it would be to have a Mountain West Democrat in the White House one of these days. Frank Church would be smiling.
