GARY HART AT OXFORD....Gary Hart spoke at Oxford on Friday and Josh Chafetz was there. Conclusion: he's pretty knowlegable, has a good sense of humor, but overall is a disappointment. Politicians usually use speeches like this to express their general principles, not provide white paper level detail, so I suspect Josh was hoping for a little too much from Hart, who made some arguments Josh doesn't like and didn't defend them adequately. Still, it's an interesting firsthand look.

Josh puts the odds at a bit over 50% that Hart will run for president.

UPDATE: Jeralyn over at TalkLeft heard Hart's speech too, and her opinion was quite a bit more positive.
