3 Way Race in 2008?

Washington Whispers: "We know, we know, the race for the White House is a long way off. But there is already a growing buzz on the Democratic side that there are just three worthy candidates likely to end up in a pitted primary battle starting in 19 months: New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, and one-term ex-Virginia Gov. Mark Warner. Here's the 411 from a top Democratic maven: Clinton is the, well, elephant in the room, the "uber" candidate; Warner gets the mainstream moderates; and progressive Feingold is attractive to the activists who seem to be taking over the party."

You have to throw Edwards in there who is going to have major support from the Change to Win Unions as well as a large amount of grassroots oomph. There is also a pretty fair amount of grassroots support for Wes Clark. Either of those two, but especially Edwards -- who one presumes has learned some lessons -- will be formidable candidates.
