Apparently Jon Corzine, the presumptive Democratic nominee for NJ governor
, is enjoying a relative respite with a commanding view
while his possible opponents scramble for attention.
"He's on a political pedestal right now," said Tom Giblin, a former chairman of the state Democratic Party. "The only thing they haven't done is bronze him. The perception in both parties is that he's going to be the next governor."
A rare treat to be a nonincumbent and get to stand back and watch the sharks fight among themselves. There's still time for a surprise as the election nears, but the current state of affairs is pretty remarkable.
