Dodd Talk Clock

Our favorite Iowa resident, Chris Dodd, is getting ready to do political battle with his fellow Democrats tonight in the "City of Brotherly Love", Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Chris Dodd has been struggling mightily to get out of the basement of the Democratic field these past months, with even Stephen Colbert outpacing Dodd in South Carolina. So said Tim Russert in Dodd's Sunday interview on Meet the Press:

"Back in May of ‘06, you told the Connecticut Post, “I realize I’m not a household name. That will obviously change. At least I hope it does, or this will be a relatively short campaign.” That was ‘06. Here’s the latest poll from Public Opinion Strategies: Hillary Clinton, 40; Obama, 19; Edwards, 12; Joe Biden, 2.7; Stephen Colbert, 2.3; Bill Richardson, 2.1; Dennis Kucinich, 2.1; Mike Gravel less than 1 percent; Chris Dodd, 0." - http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21515779/page/3/

Dodd's response to Russert's query, of course, was nothing short of classic: "Well, we’ve got a lot of room to grow here, as we, as we say, Tim, in the campaign."

Anyway, posted above is the admittedly nifty "Dodd Talk Clock", measuring how little time Chris Dodd gets to contribute to the debate tonight. Lets watch and cheer our beloved Senator on to victory.
