Usually, that’s not a serious question but over the next two days it’s a real possibility. I wrote earlier this week on the main site about Alan Keyes seeking the Constitution Party’s presidential nomination. The CP convention has been going on in Kansas City, Missouri and today is when the big speeches are scheduled to be delivered, probably Keyes’s best chance to win over a majority of delegates. Tomorrow the party decides on a nominee.
I’m hearing two things, each pointing in different directions. The first is that Keyes has more support among the delegates than some of his opponents expected. The second is that the Keyes campaign’s proposed revisions of the CP platform — bringing them more into line with his positions on Iraq, the UN, and foreign aid — have been voted down, so these issues remain a major stumbling block for Keyes.
