Interesting observations here. I’m not surprised at all, congresscritters don’t jump to the presidency, and he seems smart enough to know it.
FWIW, Erickson at RedState is deeply saddened, too.
It’s really disgusting to me, that pundits and others seem to think that they can pick candidates to run, when one of the most important criteria has to be the candidate’s own *fire-in-the-belly* to run!
I give you the almost dragged and drafted Fred Thompson in ‘08 as the sterling example.
Probably won’t be too many Senators doing it either after the disaster we have now.
