Personally, I’d rather see a requirement that earmarks have a legitimate federal perspective — that is, be used for federal, constitutional activities rather than local projects — than a blanket ban on earmarks. I think the fixation with earmarks is overblown and I’d rather the focus be on much larger spending programs. But I nevertheless think the Senate Republicans should adopt the moratorium for the very reason Senator McConnell outlined: this is the bare minimum people expect as a gesture that Republicans are more credible on spending. Rejecting the moratorium and opting for earmarks would be a sign the GOP still wants to campaign as a limited government party but govern as a big spending one.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
