Clark's campaign manager quits over differences of opinion on what kind of campaign to run, according to the New York Times.
Donnie Fowler told associates he was leaving over widespread concerns that supporters who used the Internet to draft Clark into the race are not being taken seriously by top campaign advisers. Fowler also complained that the campaign's message and methods are focused too much on Washington, not key states and the burgeoning power of the Internet, said two associates who spoke on condition of anonymity.

[...] Fowler has complained that while the Internet-based draft-Clark supporters have been integrated into the campaign, their views are not taken seriously by Fabiani, Klain and other top advisers, many of them based in Washington. He has warned Clark's team that the campaign is threatening to be overly focused on Washington, a charge leveled against Gore's campaign in 2000.
Awhile back I predicted to V that I could imagine Clark's campaign fizzling out sometime around New Year's. 'Course, my predictions are worth what you paid to read this site, but we'll see.
