Re: Regrets Over Could-Have-Been GOP Contenders

Joe: I think Goldberg is onto something regarding Governor Pawlenty, who I've often rooted for, via this magazine. Towards the end, he was out-charmed and perhaps equally, out-spent (though lack of funds was the lesser story, it's still integral). It's also why I made the case via The Atlantic a couple months ago that GOP contenders should spend fewer resources in one place--Iowa--and spread their own wealth, time, and media around. Perhaps if Pawlenty had done that, we'd still be listening to his no-nonsense thoughts on spending and hockey.
