Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Two Campaign Points

1. The most recent studies show a surge for McCain in both Michigan and SC, and they don’t fully reflect, at least, any bounce that may come from NH. That’s bad news for Romney in one case and Fred in the other. John and Huck have a win/win in Michigan if, as Joe predicts, McCain wins but Huckabee finishes a strong second. The SC outcome might be more winner-take-all. They both don’t have the luxury of swooning, because they don’t have war chests are (like General Sherman) are living off the land.

2. Santorum is all over the web for his tough criticism of McCain for not being for Bush’s tax policy and for not even paying lip-service in the Senate to social conservatism. On those two issues, Huck is clearly to John’s right. Although I’m too lazy to research the issue at the moment, I don’t think Rick is saying anything about Huck.

I saw Santorum on Fox news and he seemed to be genuinely impressed with Huckabee, considers him to be a serious contender,thinks he's the candidate most likely to appeal to the republican base, and thought there was a serious possibility he could be a strong candidate on the national stage.

Peter, maybe you should write Huck's Darwin speech---that would be great to read (and an important corrective to Will's caricature)
