The folks at Slate, the online political magazine, have managed to boil down the endless Democratic nomination fight into a seven-minute video.
It starts with the full slate of candidates and their messages, and ends with Barack Obama repudiating his former pastor this week, and still in pole position. (This blog even appears fleetingly, about the resignation of Hillary Clinton's co-chairman in New Hampshire after he talked to Obama's youthful experimentation with drugs.)
For those who haven't been paying close attention, it's a relatively quick tour of the high, and low, points. For political junkies and partisans, it's a nostalgic trip. And for those covering the campaign, it's an exhausting reminder of how long the race has gone.
And, in all likelihood, there's still at least five weeks to go.
