Did you see the Republican Debate last night?

No,  neither did I.

I’m not all that political, but I think one of the main strengths of the Republican party is that they don’t have Hillary Clinton.

Let’s see the cast of characters included:

Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kansas)

the former Virginia governor James Gilmore (R-Va.)

the former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani

the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.)

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.)

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.)

the former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.)

and the former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson

     Other than McCain, Romney & Guiliani; I think the rest have quite a bit of groundwork to do to even be recognized by most Americans at this point. McCain has established himself as a Bush “mini-me”.  Romney, I believe, may have to do some convincing to the public about his faith in Mormonism….specifically portions of Christians. I also think that his transition from pro-choice to pro-life is a believable one; others may not be able to follow that. Guliani seems to be down-to-Earth, funny and knowledgeable.  Other than having some troubles with his personal life splashed in the NY press, he seems pretty straight-forward.

  1. A politician is a politician. When it comes to the American voting system it basically comes down to choosing the lesser of two evils.
