How Mike Gravel Lost the Democratic Primary

Well, technically he became a Libertarian. This and other fun facts/memories can be found in Slate's eight-minute slam-bam review of the Democratic presidential primary race.

Highlights include:

*Hillary Clinton's tearful plea in New Hampshire: "I just don't want to see us fall backwards"
*Barack Obama's Somali garb photo
*John Edwards's speeches about his father and the mill he worked in
*Bill Richardson's beard
