Alternet has a story about green attempts to unseat Rep. Richard "Dick" Pombo (R-Calif.) that is substantially a retread of Amanda’s story from a few weeks ago. There’s a lot of hand-waving, but no good, practical answer to the main question, to wit: What chance in hell do these efforts have in succeeding? Perhaps I will be pleasantly surprised come 2006, but from everything I’ve seen my own answer remains: a snowball’s.

Oh, and I forgot, Carl Pope also blogged about this, quoting a political scientist saying, “Personally, I’d look at anything less than a two-to-one win (by Pombo) as a clear signal.” That’s one way of defining victory, I guess.
