Ken Mehlman to Join the Giuliani Campaign?
Over the last day or so, there's been a trickle of Google traffic with the keywords "Mehlman" and "Giuliani." Now I know why.
Apparently, on Chris Matthews's show yesterday, Kathleen Parker speculated that Ken Mehlman would join the Giuliani camp after his current term as RNC Chairman, according to Daniel McGivergan at the Weekly Standard.
If true, it would turn the race upside down overnight and immediately end all the carping about the "staff primary." At the same time, I wouldn't bet the house on it yet. This seems like a rather odd way for it to come out. And I wouldn't put it past one of the rival camps to float the rumor when they knew Mehlman would be neutral or go somewhere else, making the end result appear like a major loss for Giuliani.
So, we'll see. I'm not putting too much stock in this.
