Hillary’s Party

Two Hillary items not to miss:

The Washington Posts’s disclosure yesterday of the fact that Harold Ickes is setting up what amounts to a parallel Democratic Party to the one run by Howard Dean (whom they obviously don’t trust), using George Soros’s money for one of those fancy voter databses that some credit with giving the Republicans an edge last cycle. (Others credit voters.)

Also, Greg Sargent has a look on The American Prospect’s blog at Mark Penn’s briefing with donors, at which her pollster talked up that WSJ/NBC poll that has her as the nation’s leading Democrat.
