The rest of the political world, in other news: 1. A total must-read Balz and Broder byline on former NGA/DGA chairman Howard Dean and the nation's governors: "Dean's lack of success in attracting endorsements from Democratic chief executives stands in sharp contrast President Bush's success four years ago among Republican governors." … "On the basis of interviews with many of the Democrats who are attending the National Governors Association (NGA) meeting here this week, it appears unlikely that Dean can expect to see significant gubernatorial support anytime soon. 'It's not going to happen,' said Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, who holds open the possibility of eventually endorsing one of the nine Democratic presidential candidates but who remains neutral for now. Virginia Gov. Mark Warner said, 'I don't see any move at this point for governors to move as a bloc.'" Be sure to read Governor Granholm's quote as well. LINK
