Mondale, Dead Party Walking

I have been trying to keep up with what Mondale is doing as a candidate. I watch him move around, talk, I even watch his body movements (slight). His person and his campaign is all recycled, all old, all utterly without value and passion. What passion there is--as they used to say twenty years ago--Scandinavian. The man is naturally boring, he just sighs away the days. Whatever vices he used to have at a younger age are now exacerbated. The New Republic had a good critical piece on his acceptance talk, and James Lileks finishes the job. I am thinking that he would lose big if the campaign lasted more than a week; now I am thinking it will be close, but he will lose.
