I cannot disagree with you. But the American people would reject Senator Coburn by approximately the same margin that it did Goldwater in my opinion. Coburn might even have trouble carrying OK if he ran for president. People are a lot more liberal than those on our forum care to admit.

What happened to Representative Istook? Why did he get creamed?

Actually, McConnell did back down and called off the filibuster against McCain-Feingold, having said that he would never let the measure come up for a vote.

Finally some good news for 2008!!!! I am so glad this loser is not running. It would have been just an embarrasment for him anyway. I can't believe how much he did to destroy the Senate in his tenur. Shameful!!!!!

I am really scared that it is going to be 1996 all over again. A really poor choice for President. God forbid if the Democrats pick a strong candidate. We are really going to have to look for some no-name like the Democrats did in 1992 and we did in 2000. Hopefully we will be able to do that.

Wow. The first invertebrate-eunuch Senate Majority Leader finally did something right.

You're right. Though given his moral sense thus far, I'd surely be surpised to find him very far out of that compass. It certainly seems worth the look.

About the only solution I can see to this mess is a prayer campaign.

I'll be happy to join you in that endeavor! Lord, have mercy on us.

As for Frist, isn't he a doctor? Let's send him to Iraq so he can start really helping people who are in desperate need of medical care.

All the frist critics on FR are disgusting and are lower than snails when compared to Bill Frist.

That remark is below the belt seeing as he often has done charity work in deprived areas of the world.

America has seldom needed a great leader more. Where the dickens is he?

We have great leaders. What we have not had is great followers. Have you ever watched a football team with a great QB and a great coach but the rest were lousy players ? It is not a pretty picture.

maybe we can find someone that the conservative base will support.

TANCREDO/BUCHANAN. THE DREAM TICKET.

Perhaps but the WH folk definitely did NOT care at all for Trent Lott. Guess they thought he was "too independent."

BOTTOM LINE: Democrats can have a "macacca" moment and get away with it, for Republicans, it is one strike and you are out. It is the unwritten rule of politics.

We have great leaders. What we have not had is great followers.

True. But one mark of a great leader is to get people to follow him. Reagan managed that. The press worked against him 24/7, and tried to Watergate him with Iran/Contra, but it didn't work, because he reached out to people and persuaded them he was a good man.

It can be a fault of Democracies that they follow demagogues and populists to their ruin. After the death of Pericles, Athens followed Creon and Alcibiades, and as a result was destroyed by Sparta. It was the same Athens it was earlier, but it lacked another Pericles, someone who was both wise and persuasive.

The ONLY Republican I would vote for right now as president is Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn. He's the ONLY Republican with principle, as far as I'm concerned.

You really think they'll let us have that choice? I don't. But he is the conservative darling, capable man, good speaker, no scandals. Funny how the real conservatives like Pence and Coburn get neglected here at FR any more in favor of who has kissed the king's ring most recently.

Well, maybe Dims in the majority will make conservatives (even Republicans) focus more on principles, performance and consistency. I hope so.

Eek. The Dims could run Kennedy/Schumer and probably win.

... besides Dick Cheney I don't see anyone out there that I could reeeeely get enthusiastic about in 2008...

Condi? I know she keeps saying that she is not going to run, but I'll bet someone could convince her that her country needs her.

Vice President Cheney. He won't run and he had been demonized by the press. But I like his style and conservatarian philosophy.

I LOVE Cheney. I even named my cat after him.

It was not meant that way. We need him over there to see what is really going on.

Well I wonder if Bill Frist will ever endorse McCain? I always thought it was McCain’s “Gang of 14” that took Frist out of the president race.
