Many readers objected to my column arguing that Tom Tancredo can’t win, has no serious fundraising network or campaign organization, and will consequently set back his immigration allies if he runs for president in 2008. Some even confused this analysis for my personal political preferences, which, um, isn’t quite right.
I still think Tancredo is unlikely to emerge as a serious presidential contender, but I was struck by the number of people who said that given the current field he should run anyway. It sounds like Human Events editor at large Terence Jeffrey is in this camp. Am I missing something about the man Steve Sailer calls America’s most valuable politician or is this just a sign of what things have come down to for anti-Giuliani, anti-McCain conservatives?
