Clark about to drop out? http://www.tnr.com/blog/campaignjournal?pid=1307
I don't know if Clark will even be willing to sign on with Dean as a joint ticket, but I sincerely hope that the Dean campaign is approaching him. Dean/Clark offers everything that Kerry or Edwards alone can, and substantially more. Given that Edwards is limited by federal matching funds, we might well be seeing a Kerry/Edwards dynamic soon if Dean beats him in Wisconsin, and so the advantages of Dean/Clark are going to be even more strategically essential.
Let's see what Clark does next. I suspect he will drop out tomorrow, and will lie low until Wisconsin's primary...

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
