What Would a Lamont Victory Mean?

SO WHAT WOULD a Ned Lamont victory mean for Dems as 2008 nears? It certainly will embolden the anti-war wing of the party. It also will serve as the most important victory to date for the internet-based, grass-roots faction of the party -- the same group that gave Howard Dean such a huge lift in the early stages of the '04 primary.

But more importantly, a Lamont victory will have huge implications for the presidential plans of people like Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, and...yes, Al Gore. As Dan Balz reports in Sunday's WaPo, it may be Al Gore who would gain the most from Lamont win.
