Interesting speculative political question

or, "O, that I had a platform like Eschaton!"

Are Arianna Huffington and Hollywood right? Can Al Gore be transformed into Populist Al Gore? More interestingly, actually: after Katrina, is populism being born again? Because John Edwards was certainly playing that tune on "The Daily Show" last week. If he can turn it into a musical and make a road show of it, will this be the theme song for the Democrats? Will we be entertained by battling populists speaking for displaced New Orleans neighbors and against power hungry politicians like Tom DeLay? (Who seems to think "law&order" is just fine, so long as it doesn't involve him.)

This could be good.
