Just Darts Since 2009
Christopher Dodd: Hail to the Creep?

So now you’ve thrown your hat into the ring, declaring your intention to run for President of the United States. I really don’t need to rain on your parade, because it will be cut short without my help. (Hint: Limousine liberals from New England don’t do well as national candidates in general elections. Kerry’s defeat wasn’t due to the swiftboating so much as the windsurfing.) No, I won’t rain on your parade, just dash a little cold water in your face.
Of course you haven’t forgotten, you just hope the voters have. Or that, if they do remember, it will just be chalked up to a “youthful indiscretion.” And for the most part, it has. After all, you were with Ted Kennedy. But assaulting a young woman is not an indiscretion. You weren’t making a clumsy pass, like Bob Packwood, who resigned in disgrace.
Don Imus referred to this sexual assault while interviewing you in 2002, and you didn’t seem to like that much. I would advise you to come up with a better response than “don’t go there,” Senator, because you’re going to be asked about it again and by real journalists. Not because they want you to squirm, of course. Not at all.
Because Hillary does.
A recent poll shows that 92% of Connecticut voters agree with me.
