12/8: Warner impresses SC Dems

Virginia Gov. Mark Warner virtually wrapped up the S.C. Democratic presidential primary for 2008 with seeming endorsements from major party leaders during a Charleston fund-raiser. According to an article in The (Charleston) Post and Courier:
"But the reception at a state party fundraiser Wednesday night was overwhelmingly supportive of the lame-duck governor, whose political stardom is on the rise after he led his party to victory in Virginia's recent gubernatorial election."
Among the comments:

Former U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings:
"I believe like the rest of you that we have a real winner here tonight."
Former S.C. Gov. Jim Hodges:
"You are going to be one heck of a president."
Former SC Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian:
"I think the people in this room heard the next president of the United States. He was inspiring."
