HARDBALL, OCTOBER 7, 2003….I’ll be honest: I don’t really know what to think about all the Arnold revelations that have hit the news in the past couple of days. Are they an organized smear campaign or legitimate news? Do they matter, or are they too far in the past? Does this kind of stuff get a pass in this post-Clinton era?

Beats me. I’ll leave it up to Dan Weintraub and Mickey Kaus to somehow spin this as Howell Raines’ fault ? something they should have no trouble doing. On the question of whether it will actually hurt Arnold’s teflon candidacy, however, I think Keith Berry pretty much nails it here.
