O’Hanlon Primary Update

Here’s an interesting nugget:

None of the leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination is likely to embrace that, said [Michael] O’Hanlon, who suspended his ties to the campaign of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) after he wrote that Bush’s troop buildup was yielding positive results.

Since O’Hanlon was still being quoted in the media as a Clinton supporter a few weeks ago, I have to imagine the campaign (finally) got sick of him and got him to buzz off. But of course things can change when one shifts from “primary mode” to “general election mode” and I’m not sure what “suspended his ties” is really supposed to mean. What’s more, O’Hanlon’s always got Opportunity ’08 to play around with.
