ABC News’s uber-wired Political Unit feeds conventional wisdom into a 19-part (!) numerical formula, and finds that conventional wisdom emerges. They call it the Invisible Primary, which apparently ]measure(s) past, present, and future simultaneously.” Mediawise, it’s kind of a brilliant idea: When the time comes, it will generate its own quasi-news. “Rudy Giuliani moves up in our invisible primary rankings. Next up, George and his panel discuss.”
Hillary leads the Democrats, McCain the Republicans. Contra the polls — but as CW has held for a while — Rudy is stuck in fourth place in the GOP field.
