Friend Marc Herman, obviously paying me back because of the sweet postcard I sent him from New Orleans, alerted me to this great article by Ben Cohen from The Daily Banter:
With a new political era looming, veterans of the old political arena will scramble to redefine themselves in order to make a living. Politicians, media commentators and analysts may be ill equipped to deal with the changing electorate, increased power of the blogosphere and massive discontent with the status quo. Who will survive in the modern epoch? Here are 10 who should really think about calling it quits.
Who are the Terrible Ten?
William Kristol Sarah Palin Michelle Malkin Dick Morris Dick Cheney Mitt Romney Alan Greenspan Bill O'Reilly Sean Hannity George Bush
Cohen's post contains more info on each of the above.

"We are tempted to comment, in these last days before the war, on the U.N., and the French, and the Democrats. But the war itself will clarify who was right and who was wrong about weapons of mass destruction. It will reveal the aspirations of the people of Iraq, and expose the truth about Saddam's regime. It will produce whatever effects it will produce on neighboring countries and on the broader war on terror. We would note now that even the threat of war against Saddam seems to be encouraging stirrings toward political reform in Iran and Saudi Arabia, and a measure of cooperation in the war against al Qaeda from other governments in the region. It turns out it really is better to be respected and feared than to be thought to share, with exquisite sensitivity, other people's pain. History and reality are about to weigh in, and we are inclined simply to let them render their verdicts." -- William Kristol, The Weekly Standard, 17 March 2003.
