Luis Fortuño is the Republican governor of Puerto Rico, and a one-time Spectator contributor. His name is worth remembering, because, as a conservative, hispanic governor, he could draw attention as a possible pick for the vice president slot on a Republican national ticket. Tim Pawlenty has already mentioned him in this capacity.
Joseph Figueroa notes an interesting possibility: as a Puerto Rican, Fortuño is a U.S. citizen and constitutionally eligible for the vice presidency. Puerto Ricans can’t vote in presidential elections, however, so while he could run for VP, Fortuño couldn’t vote for himself.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
