I still do not have a clue...
Laup Nor (to the un-initiated, read it backwards) is right out. (True story: I used to live in his District, several lifetimes ago. See also: Story, Long)
Newt? Ah, no. Do I think he'd make a good President? Maybe, probably. I'm not giving any weight to the "un-electable" argument; remember, in the summer of 1980 Ronald Reagan was considered by many to be un-electable. Newt represents a "target rich environment" for the democrats and the media (BIRM).
Romney? He's the one with the baggage problem (Romneycare). Uninspiring. Running on his resume, rather than on a vision for the way forward.
Which leaves Santorum. A couple of weeks ago, I was really starting to warm up to Santorum, but then he opened his mouth and crazy started pouring out. Listen, I understand social issues. I don't disagree with much of what he's saying, but to paraphrase Leslie Neilson in Airplane!: "...but, that's not important right now..." We need to fix the fiscal right now, the social can wait.
meh. It's gotten late early again.
