Well if the choices are the leaders in the early states — Huckbee, Romney and McCain — I’d agree there is no perfect choice on economics. (Having Phil Gramm around McCain makes me feel better however.) But some are worse than others and there may yet be time for one of the others to make a move. Although on this last point, the Gallup poll and the latest from SC suggests that Romney had it partially right. The early states do matter a whole bunch and those who didn’t compete strenuously early on ( and even more so those who tired real hard and lost) have their work cut out for them.
