So is Mick Huckabee now the designated Republican With Integrity? I saw him on the Daily Show the other night, where Jon seemed quite taken from him, as he once was with McCain. Huckabee got spontaneous audience applause for saying that he believes life begins at conception but that we should work to fund, protect and support children's lives after they are born as well.

That's actually quite close to what you said in the first place. And at the time you said it, I accused you of deliberately trying to give me nightmares.


I've always expected that McCain would be heir apparent to Bush, and that things had to get a whole lot worse before a Dem would have a shot at president. With events of the last year or so, it's looking much more likely that the Repub voters are starting to abandon Bush, and they would not support McCain --let alone McCain and Lieberman. So, for that reason... GO Saint John and Holy Joe! Repubs won't vote for you, and the Dems surely won't. Great matchup for the pundits, though.


Hagel and Huckabee, in that order, are the most threatening GOP candidates. I can see McCain declaring some kind of Bull Moose bullshit independent candidacy if he sees the nomination slipping away from him. The man has an ego that could swallow Bush's sense of entitlement.

I started out rooting for Brownback, until I realised that Failed Republican candidates (even one who would lose probably 45-50 states) get Key Pundit Positions, and having Brownback talking about the Failed Edwards Administration (op. cit. Dave Barry, which, fortunately, Duncan Black in a previous role also remembered) would be too painful.
