He’s running. He’s known. His personal failings are old news. He hasn’t had to vote on anything in seven years. And if the Republicans need a change, he alone can tell a powerful story: the Republican Revolution was a glorious victory, squandered by the Abramoffs, the DeLays, and yes, even the Bushes.Like Schmidt I think Newt is a likely nominee and like Schmidt I don't think he can win a general election.

2008 and the Republicans
Mark Schmitt has an analysis of the potential 2008 Republican candidates for President and comes to the conclusion they really don't have any. He gives a good rundown on each that seems to be right on. He talks about John McCain, George Allen, Bill Frist, Senator Santorum, Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback and Condoleeza Rice. Most of the above will be rejected by the kool-aide drinking theocrat wingnuts. So who does he see as the most likely to get the nomination? Newt Gingrich.
