Brief Aside

Dan Bartlett on the problems with the GOP presidential field:

"Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."


None of the Republicans running have the strength and experience of being a two-term governor from a large, middle-American state. A lone-star state, if you will. None of these men has a name, a good name, a name you can trust. A name that sounds a lot like the name of another U.S. president. None of these guys is comfortable enough in his own skin that he'll be able to sleep like a baby while American troops are in harm's way and see into the deepest souls of the leaders of our country's rivals. In short, the biggest problem with the current crop of Republicans is that none of them is George W. Bush.

So I guess we now have the Bushie fallback position should Hillary sweep to a 40-state victory next year. Awesome.

JVL, take heart: I've never not voted for the Democrat in a presidential race before. I happen to believe strongly that the republic might not recover in my lifetime from another four years of Republican management of the executive branch.

And I will not vote for Hillary in November 2008.

I suspect (hope?) that there may be just enough people who share my attitude to prevent your 40-state landslide if we follow the authoritarian foolishness of nominating a president's son with the banana-republic debasement of nominating a president's wife.
