· Kerry, Edwards promote untested ideas for the economy. "Outsourcing is a new phenomenon. We don't really have a clue what's going on," says a Kerry aide. Edwards is "a 'soft' opponent of trade deals, one who is open to presidential arm-twisting." [WP and LAT]

· Tears from insiders who backed Dean and now look naive: They are "in the same position as the lawyer who signed on to the dot-com boom only to have the start-up go bust and was forced to come slinking back to the firm, the accountant who joined the rock band that fizzled, anyone on the morning after a one-night stand." [WP]

· Bush runs from 2.6 million new jobs promise: "I think the economy is growing, and I think it's going to get stronger." McClellan: Bush did not endorse the jobs forecast because he's "not a predictor. . . That's the projection of a lot of smart economists who have analyzed the package." [WP]
