And They're Off....

Now that Barack Hussein Obama has announced his candidacy for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination, things are starting to heat up. According to Dick Morris, none of the top tier Republican contenders for the nomination in 2008 are going to make it to the finish line. I don't quite agree with him, but hell, he's a lot older than me and and has been in Washington D.C. a long time and worked with the craftiest of them all, Bill/Hillary Clinton, I like Newt/Romney or Tancredo:

"I think you’ll see one of the minor leaguers win it [the GOP nomination],” Morris told Fox News Channel.

Morris thinks the leading Republican candidates – Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich – are "too flawed” to win the hearts and votes of conservatives in the early primaries.

"The top four candidates for the Republican nomination can’t win,” Morris said. "Rudy Giuliani, John McCain . . . Romney with all of the flip-flops on abortion and Newt Gingrich, who I don’t think gets into it.”

That leaves a cast of lesser-known Republicans in line for a surprise run toward the nomination.

"I think that the Republican nominee is going to be one of these minor leaguers: [Tom] Tancredo, [Mike] Huckabee, [Sam] Brownback, [Jim] Gilmore from Virginia, Duncan Hunter from California,” Morris said. "It’s like the pitching rotation is all going to be injured at the World Series and the Triple –A pitching staff, one of them is going to pitch the opening game.”

A Small Dose of Reality puts his 2 cents worth in regarding Tier 2 (for the moment) candidate Tom Tancredo:

Probably the only true conservative of the bunch. I believe he means what he says and says what he means. With no dominant Republican candidate and no serving Vice President seeking the nomination, the field is wide open. That is in addition to the fact that a lot of Republicans have turned wishy washy to try to keep their Senate and House seats. Finally I frankly think a lot of Republicans are afraid of Hillary. Tancredo is not. I recommend you research his record, listen to what he has to say and tell your friends about Tom Tancredo.

"I believe that what we are fighting here is not just a small group of people who have hijacked a religion, but it is a civilization bent on destroying ours."
Tom Tancredo

Certainly can't go wrong with that ticket that's for sure. The Dems had the perfect game plan to beat Santorum....still can't believe it.
