Chuck’s Nightmare

A nice Brooklyn diner interview with Chuck is the centerpiece of this look at his new chairmanship of the DSCC.
Short version: The national press better be ready to work Sundays.

Chuck claims never to have nightmares, but after seeing Million Dollar Baby — warning, we’re about to ruin the ending — he wound up dreaming of Hillary Swank on the respirator. Our Freudians see this as a metaphor for the condition of the Democratic Party.

Also, don’t miss this little backhanded shot at Eliot:

“Governor’s a great job: you get an airplane, you get a helicopter, you get four bodyguards. But at the end of the day, who has left legacies? Javits and Moynihan.”
