    It's no question that Dodd was an intelligent, well spoken man. He should support the a remaining candidate with much of the same qualities: Barack Obama. Though I do see that chance as slim, seeing as if he were to endorse, it would probably be a fellow long term establishment Democrat.

    Hopefully he sees the light.

    Chris,

    I don't see the American people electing a three times married man who cheated on his wife while his mistress was living in Gracie mansion. And wasn't he cheating on the mistress at the same time with a second mistress? Shades of Bill Clinton.

    He and the former mistress to whom he is now married have six marriages between the two of them. Who wants to bet at least one of them is not done marrying yet?

    That's O.K. Dodd. You're needed at home with your young wife and toddlers. It's now time to be an at home dad, while you're still somewhat young enough to walk.
