Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

November (’08) in October (’07)

First Things runs a symposium on the next president. John DiIulio hearts Huckabee and Hillary, "the Arkansas-connected odd couple." Joseph Bottum can’t imagine a Hillary victory and seems to hope that Fred Thompson will emerge from a cluttered field of relative non-entities to confront a Congress even more Democratic than it is now:

A Fred Thompson nomination, a slim election victory over Hillary ­Clinton, a stealth pro-lifer slipped on the Supreme Court through a Democratic Senate—that weak ­scenario is about the best a social conservative can hope for today. Everything else is bad. Very bad.

I wonder how long Bottum will stick with this "wishful" scenario.

I am heartily sick of any Southern accent. After Clinton's episodic usage thereof, and our current verbal cripple in chief, I say we go for someone who is actually intelligent, demonstrated as much, and can actually articulate himself well.

This nation has endured almost 16 straight years of Southern fraud in The White House. ENOUGH ALREADY!
