A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

McCain to Announce Bid on Letterman

Filed under: Congress,General,Iraq,Politics,War Protest — avoiceofreason @ 2:41 am

RightThinkingGirl posted about Senator McCain’s Announcement of Presidential bid.  Among other things, she doesn’t feel that Senator McCain has much of a chance, and sited “Strike One” of my call that the Right of the GOP makes against the Arizona Senator, Campaign Finance Reform.

I tried to lead her back to reason by saying,

However, there is a problem for the GOP with their nominee. Consider the three front runners:
Giuliani (Whom I support, but what do you expect from a NYer)
McCain
Romney

I list them in the order of their current ranking. However, none of these three have escaped the scrutiny of the “hard” right element of the GOP. At the present time, and I know that 2008 is far far away only the top two poll remotely well against Dem frontrunners. Romney gets creamed.

The second tier of candidates, and for the most part preferred by the right element of the party are:

Hunter
Tancredo
Thompson – who is hated by the right
Huckabee

The question is do “ANY” of these second tier players assuming things remain as they are come February have a remote chance of winning at a national level? Notwithstanding Gov. Huckabee’s, who I admire in many ways, ability to work a room, he and the others listed have “no chance” to win anything but their respective districts and maybe Gov. Huckabee, a Senate seat.

There is some rumbling, that former Senator Fred Thompson may be lured into running, but I also find that unlikely.

  1. I definitely am looking at Hunter and Huckabee as the two candidates I like the best right now. I am in New Hampshire, if one of them could pull off an upset here, who knows what will happen.I know it’s a longshot. I will support whoever comes out of the GOP primary.
    I am just starting to look through your blog, and it looks very good,alot of interesting posts here.

  2. I don’t know if either have the name recognition to pull that off. I think Huckabee may end up in the Senate, at least that is what I’v been reading.

    I also believe there was a problem with the Hunter campaign this past week, and will try to look into it, but have to head out at the moment.
