Mark Leibovich writes in the WaPo that Bob Shrum (Kerrys campaign chief), and his supporters--if he has any--are hoping to reverse the curse: Shrum is 0 for 7 in campaigns.

"Its a remarkable feat, but teeter-tottering John Kerry is even managing to land on both sides of the ambition issue." And thats just the first line.
