Too bad it’s such a crappy field. I have to wonder if Palin isn’t kicking herself now. She could have had the nomination in a walk. It’s unreal that we’ve been reduced to the point of considering a statist retread like Gingrich as some great alternative plan to stop Willard.

In 2008, Willard was being pumped as a way to stop McCain. Four years later we’re still lost in the desert.

Willard’s waterloo will be SC. Mark it down.

No, she’d be polling even with Bachmann. They merely split the conservative vote, too.

Go back in time to say 1950. Make a list of the perfect candidates that have come along since then. Here's my list:

...

That's it.

Add in the maybe OK candidates and you get pretty much the same list. And remember it's the "going in" view of the candidate that counts. As I have stated in other posts, even Ronald Reagan wasn't RONALD REAGAN in 1980. He was an average talented actor who happened to be a pretty good governor who rode a speech that he made in support of the Goldwater campaign in 1964 to the Presidency of the United States. A great President no doubt. But we didn't know that in 1980. It was a roll of the dice that worked out for us.
