I forgot that Scooter Libby was our new litmus test issue on the right. Thank you for reminding me. Perhaps we can compromise and have a Ron Paul/Scooter Libby ticket. At least half of that ticket would be in favor of smaller government, tax cuts, the Second Amendment, and the right to life.
Fellows like Duncan Hunter and Mike Huckabee, the first a good conservative soldier and the latter an eloquent sound-bite artist, tend to do quite well in these debates. Unfortunately for them, so did Alan Keyes in 2000. My guess is they won’t eat into the lead enjoyed by Rudy Giuliani and John McCain much more than Keyes did to Dubya and McCain.
My pick for winner: Fred Thompson.
