Another one bites the dust. Where will the GOP find its new blood? John Boehner, at a recent press event, told me ruefully that the Party faced "tough" battles for five or six seats in '08. He remained confident about the rest, but lowballed the number of open seats. And he insisted that Great New Candidates were on the way, possibly already on the make...and hurried back to talking about Energy as the Biggest Issue of the Year. I, in my skepticism, was doubly unmoved.
