Weigel reports:

I've seen Barr chatting with Gravel and Ruwart delegates, making the electability case.

So is the Democratic party the only political party that frowns on the electability argument? And how is it that Barr's electability argument is taken seriously when he has zero chance of being elected, while Clinton, who really does look more electable than Obama, and who is likely to secure a larger share of the popular vote in the Democratic primary, is ridiculed for making the same case?
