Well that was fast. Several are reporting that Tom Vilsack will drop out of the race today. This means little in the short run, of course, but should set up an interesting scramble for his support.

Rumors are that besides the fund-raising hurdles, Vilsack will cite global warming (or cooling, depending on the day) as a key reason for his withdrawal.

Seriously, kudos to Vilsack for seeing the writing on the wall. When as a popular former governor you can’t hit double digits in your own state, there’s no hope. Now if only Biden and Dodd would follow suit.

Vilsack for Veep?
